Wed 16th December is Reconciliation Day

Mandiseli, Ben and me are inviting volunteers to come and help at the (informal) “community centre” in Makhaza, Khayelitsha
It’s the place we are running the home-gardens project from, and where we are encouraging other community focused activities
We are helping the community to make it a beautiful place and need lots of hands and love to help

You are invited J and please invite your friends and family

Wed 16th December 2009 10:30 – 2:30

An indication of who is coming would be very helpful – and we should share lifts where possible so please let me know who can offer and who needs a lift. thanks

Please bring: Your wonderful self and a smile is all that is required

A bit of money to buy fruit from the neighbouring fruit vendor if you want a snack or want to share with local volunteers (support local business)
– A water bottle or cup to drink from – there is a tap there
– Gardening gloves / hat / suntan lotion …
– Some black bags for rubbish
– If you have some tools … we are putting up a lapa, there is a fence to fix – few big holes in it! …
– (we would like to use locally recovered/recycled materials – scrounge for discarded wood etc and be innovative .. but some nails, wire, hammers, … really help a LOT)
– If you have some gardening tools (we do have a few – depends how many come. if you wish to donate an indigenous shrub / tree, or fruit tree please contact me re what will be suitable and bring compost and mulch for it too

N2 towards Somerset West. Take the R310 Baden Powell off ramp and turn right towards Muizenberg – cross over the freeway. You’ll pass a collection of sculptures on your right; soon after that. 1st turn right into Landsdowne Rd (the sign left says Macassar and the sign right I think says Khayelitsha, but don’t worry its 1st right after the sculptures!)
1st left opposite a taxi rank / open space
Pass Nkzimlo school on your right
Next left at the end of the school yard
You’ll pass a play park on your right, bit further on a church under construction
Where the road makes a sharp right turn – the “centre” is on the corner on your left
We’ll be there
From Muizenberg coming along Baden Powell drive – it’s the last left turn before the N2 – rest as above

Love and blessings
