Project breathes new life into Kloof

Help The Kloof Project reach its goal to plant 100 trees on Saturday, September 4 by signing up.

WITH the celebration of Spring Day on Wednesday, September 1, businesses and residents are invited to sign up for what is likely to be the last of The Kloof Projects formal tree planting in Kloof. The impactful project, taking place during Arbor Week, will be held on Saturday, September 4 from 08:00 to 11:00.

Kevin and Lesley Schroeder, Kloof residents and the owners of PTM, a local transport brokering firm, have set a challenge to other Kloof businesses to match or exceed their R1 000 sponsorship to plant 10 trees.

“This would be a great gesture for Kloof businesses to thank the community, who showed such camaraderie and commitment to protect their assets during the recent unrest, overseen by the amazing Kloof CPF teams,” said the NPO’s Chris Dalzell.

Residents are invited to plant a living gift in memory of a deceased loved one, and to enjoy watching it thrive and grow into something beautiful.

“By increasing the number of indigenous trees, to ultimately take the place of unwanted Category 1 and 2 alien trees, it will assure an attractive green corridor in years to come, serving as a safe haven for creatures needing to adapt to living in an urban environment,” said Dalzell.

The holes have been pre-dug and are prepped for planting. The NPO thanked each of its sponsors for their support of the event.
