The Swellendam Hackers (of Alien Invasive Trees/Plants)

  • 0¬†followers


We are Swellendammers, of all ages, with a love of Nature and Fynbos in particular. We love our town and want to make our municipal commonage a pleasure for all to enjoy for leisure. Simultaneously, our work restores fynbos and its biodiversity; we support the claim that fynbos is our source of pure oxygen, a waterwise natural growth which combats soil erosion; a plant system which loves burns and with controlled burning creates a fire protective zone around our town.   We are volunteers, and sometimes do fundraisers for equipment such as poppers, machetes,, gloves, handsaws, anvil loppers and the cost of running of our chainsaws. The Botanical Society of South Africa and SANBI support hacking through all their provinces for conservation of our unique biodiversity and world-renowned plant species. The Cape Floral Kingdom ( Western Cape only) is a world renowned bio hotspot, the 6th and smallest area, boasting over 10000 species. Please join us on Friday afternoons from 17h00 till sundowner time.   Follow us on Instagram (Swellendam.hackers) and under Conservation Activities. Our whatsapp group (with weekly venues) is Do you now invasive trees? Buy Swellendam Tree Guide from Bokmakiri Books Interested in Fynbos? Buy Beginners Guide to Fynbos at Bokmakiri Books
