Invasive Alien Plant Management
Restoration is at the heart of and the true motivation of the GCS invasive alien management plan. By removing invasive aliens in most instances the natural fynbos or renosterveld restores. The benefits to biodiversity, reduced fire threat to the village and surrounds and the water run off become apparent very quickly. A natural landscape contributes to a feeling of wellbeing to those who spend time outdoors bolstering Greyton’s tourism offering.
Partnering with Theewaterskloof municipality, Cape Nature, Working on Fire and local non-profit company Wild Restoration and residents is vital to our goals. Advice sought from experts in the field of restoration guides us in our work and assists us in prioritising, mapping and recording work done and setting realistic targets.
The monthly alien Hack is when a band of local enthusiasts get together to make a huge contribution to our landscape. Join us First Sundays for 2 hours before we enjoy each other’s company over a cup and a delicious treat.
