Western Cape, South Africa
The Cape Town Urban Greening Programme (CTUGP) is Greenpop’s oldest running project and it sits at the core of what we do. Over the past 6 years, we have planted and monitored over 10000 indigenous and fruit trees at over 250 schools, clinics and community organisations on the Cape Flats.
In 2015, we broke ground on the Woodstock Peace Park, a collaborative public space that aims to provide a safe, beautiful and fun space for families, children and the general public to enjoy when passing through the Woodstock area.
We plant hundreds of fruit trees at schools and community farms in the Cape Town area. In 2015 had the pleasure of finding fruiting apples, peaches, pomegranates and more at sites across the Cape Flats during our monitoring missions.
On the home front, we partnered with Urban Harvest to install a productive permaculturally-inspired vegetable garden at our nursery in Woodstock.
We are passionate about education and incorporate interactive learning into all of our projects. In addition, we run various skills development workshops for ground staff and teachers from our beneficiary sites and other groups who are keen to learn more about urban agriculture, eco-enterprise and leadership.
