At the beginning of winter, Camps Bay High School planted the first phase of their Garden of Hope – “a food garden for the future with roots in the past” in celebration of Arbor Week.
Cara Kahn, Head of the Camps Bay High School Alumni Association, together with members of the Camps Bay High School Environmental Club, harvested the first batch of vegetables from phase 1 of the Garden of Hope.
The first harvest produced a bounty of vegetables including lettuce, spinach, courgettes, beetroot and a selection of herbs. Phase 1 of the Garden has been entirely funded through the generous contributions of past pupils and current parents.
There’s still three phases left to complete this project and a further R150 000 is needed. Donations start at R100 and an easy-to-use fundraising campaign has been set up on Quicket.
If you would like to donate to the Garden of Hope Project, you can do so here.
“If every past pupil and current family contributed just R100 each, we will be able to reach our funding goal by the end of the year. All donations, no matter how big or small will be recognised within the garden and there are also opportunities within the Garden to remember members of the Camps Bay Alumni “Gone to soon,” says Kahn.
