Colossal Cactus Cleanup

Colossal Cactus Cleanup at Waldorf

21 June 2014, 8am to 12 noon

A big cactus cleanup is planned for the Farm Windhoek recreational area near Waldorf Kindergarten. The cacti there (as well as elsewhere in Windhoek) are multiplying and spreading exponentially and are a danger to indigenous flora and fauna, including humans and their pets.

This is an ideal opportunity to make a difference to our environment, and we need all the help we can get. Come along for as many hours as you can spare on the morning of 21st June, and bring your family and friends too.

The following are useful tools to use when removing cacti:

  • Heavy gloves (e.g. welding gloves)
  • Braai tongs and hooks
  • Forks
  • Rakes
  • Long handled clippers
  • Pangas or saws
  • Strong cardboard boxes, medium size (e.g apple box with solid base)
  • Wheelbarrows

Don’t forget:

  • Hat
  • Sunscreen or sun block
  • Water
  • Wear sturdy long trousers/pants and sturdy shoes

Please note:

  • An indemnity form will be available and will have to be signed.
  • Medical attention will be on site.
  • If you are not able to be part of this exercise but would like to help, a donation of N$150.00, payable to the Botanical Society of Namibia, will secure the services of a labourer to assist.
