Community Projects

 

Each year Urban Landscape Solutions adopts a community gardening project - this year we teamed up with WBHO Construction to install a garden at the Oasis Community Centre in Claremont.

Previous projects include parks in Witsand, Atlantis, in conjunction with the Greening Community NGO, as well as the gardens for an Aids orphanage in Mitchells Plain together with WBHO Construction.  We built a cricket pitch and planted trees at Du Noon Primary School in Milnerton, and landscaped a garden for the educational reading centre at the Kyamandi Library in Stellenbosch.

To compliment these projects, Urban Landscape Solutions partners with township communities to turn frequently denuded areas into more habitable spaces.  These projects, initiated by the City of Cape Town, often involve a liaison officer, appointed by the residents, who supply the labour, with the community as a whole taking ownership of the greening project.

Some of the successes include turning a dangerous thoroughfare in Khayelitsha's Harare Precinct 3 into a vibrant community park.  For this project the community also created mosaic works and built tree cages to protect the new trees.  In the same township, a park was landscaped on the banks of the sensitive wetlands for the residents of Makhaza Park.  The community centre at the park promotes community values and educates residents on the need to preserve the important Cape Flats wetlands.

Urban Landscape Solutions recently completed public parks in Mamre, Atlantis, Ocean View, Scottsville, Nyanga, Gugulethu and Khayelitsha.
