‘Freedom Garden’ to thank local police

2016-04-19 06:00

The friends of Muizenberg Park are calling for community support in establishing a “freedom garden”.

The garden, which will celebrate Freedom Day on Wednesday 27 April, will be gifted to the Muizenberg police to “recognise their role in protecting our freedoms”, the group says in a statement.

The planting will take place between 09:00 and 12:00.

Residents are encouraged to join the planting to “create something beautiful for the enjoyment of all and to be part of something positive”.

A design and a list of plants have been supplied by the City of Cape Town and the garden will be similar to the one at the entrance to the St James pool.

Monetary donations are also welcomed for the purchase of plants and plants on the list can be donated.

V For more information, contact Nicci Giles on 083 253 8779 or email chair@muizenbergpark.org.za. Visit the group’s Facebook page to RSVP.
