#DidYouKnow - For every five trees we sell, we donate one to help with greening various environments. Last month we were pleased to work alongside Human and Animal Welfare Koinonia (H.A.W.K) who provide a safe environment for animals that have been removed from bad conditions until they are adopted. We donated 10 x 40L Ficus microcarpa/nitida (Hills Weeping Fig) to provide much needed shade in the summer months ahead!
We worked on this project with Chris Maddams of Red Daffodil Landscaping back in 2013 for the Sanlam Investment Management offices. The hard western facade needed softening and instant shade. Considering the height & wind conditions on site, Syzygium guineense was their first option. The beautiful medium to large sized evergreen is indigenous to South Africa and often used as a very effective shade tree or a feature tree!
On the first of April we donated 39 Olea europaea subsp. africana to the Khayelitsha-based Sinovuyo Old Age Home. We were more than happy to join Greenpop in adding greenery for those living there to enjoy for years to come!
We're throwing it back to July 2015 when we visited Khanyisa Day Care Educare to donate and plant 6 x 40L Ficus natalensis on Mandela Day. We had a fantastic time with all involved in the project and enjoyed our lunch with the staff and children!See more pictures from the day at http://bit.ly/2uPi5sz.
Today we're looking at a project we worked on with Landscape Contractor, Interplant Horticulture cc, and Landscape Architect, Planning Partners, at Century Boulevard, Century City. In May 2015, we delivered Syzygium cordatum in 100L & 400L, Ficus rubiginosa in 200L & 400L and Acacia xanthophloea in 200L & 400L to beautify Century Boulevard and to offer privacy from the busy road.
On 21 February 2017, we donated 41 Celtis africana, Olea europaea subsp. Africana & Syzygium cordatum 10L to Zonnebloem Girls School. We were delighted to join Greenpop in adding more greenery to the school. Keep an eye on our page for more information on various other projects we've worked on.
