I usually had three different type of days; office days, nursery days and planting days.
In the beginning of my time at Greenpop, I used my office days to do research on companion planting, the benefits of Stinning Nettle and how to build an Herb Spiral. Through that I’ve learned a lot that benefited me on my days at the Nursery.
The highlight for me was to notice how my awareness for nature and specifically trees increased, and to use the newly gained knowledge to build a Herb Spiral at the Greenpop Nursery.
I liked Cape Town and its beautiful surrounding nature so much that I will definitely come back and bring family and friends with me. My highlight in Cape Town so far was hiking Table Mountain on the Skeleton Gorge route, which was challenging but very rewarding in the end.
I will definitely miss the incredibly lovely people I’ve met here! And being inspired by those people every day, to rethink how I live and what my priorities are in life.
