Everything’s coming up fynbos

FynbosLIFE, the non-profit company specialising in locally indigenous flora education, has received new sponsored overalls, and co-director Dr Peter Carrick says getting the team together for this photo to show off the new workwear led him to stop and reflect on how much the project has grown in one year. Co-director Dr Caitlin von Witt says that since moving across the vlei to Muizenberg in January 2021, the team has doubled to 12 people. She thanked all their supporters, particularly the Mapula Trust, Zandvlei Trust, Muizenberg Improvement District, the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa Western Cape, Still 33 and the Kirstenbosch branch of the Botanical Society of South Africa. “Not to mention the Muizenberg community – being based in such a creative melting pot of forward-thinkers has undoubtedly contributed to our growth.“
