Indigenous to South Africa, Spekboom has incredible carbon-storing capabilities which makes it a critical natural source to combating the climate change crisis.
I am taking orders for Spekboom plants from Owl Rescue up until this Friday 4 October. Bulk orders of 400 or more qualify for delivery to areas in Johannesburg from Owl Rescue at Haartbeespoort. There are near
ly 200 orders from the the CKN Enviro Care group members alone, at this rate a bulk order of 400 and even more for CKN is highly likely. The cost will be R20 per plant. R10 for the plant cost goes to Owl rescue, and R10 will go to the CKN community recycle project.
There will be a drop off point in CKN for recyclable materials where the recyclers (aka bin diggers) will collect these on a weekly basis.
We ar in discussion with the recyclers and our partner in security, Dowry. Funds raised by Spekboom orders will go towards costs for recycle receptacles and printed t-shirts for the recyclers. More info to be shared on this community recycle initiative and various enviro care projects as they progress.
If you would like to join the CKN Enviro Care WhatsApp group, you can find the group link to join in the Community WhatsApp group or send me a WhatsApp 082 523 4095 and I will send the link. All ages welcome, we encourage youth involvement.

Idea! Order an extra Spekboom for Kroton park and plant them together with others doing the same thing.
