HERMANNSBURG pupils and teacher, Mr Mike Terry, were at the “flower patch” to help clear away alien invader plants and see the variety of plants that grow in this conservation area.

This flower patch was declared a “site of conservation significance” in 2010 (a legacy of Jürgen Greve, biology teacher at  Hermannsburg School for many years), as it includes “natural features and objects which significantly contribute to the preservation of natural diversity in KwaZulu-Natal”.

Hermannsburg pupils regularly participate in clean-up exercises, along with Mondi staff and teachers, to keep the species in the flower patch thriving.
