Camps Bay High presents - Garden of Hope

Thu Jun 17, 08:00 - Sat Dec 31, 08:00

CAMPS BAY HIGH SCHOOL CREATES GARDEN OF HOPE - a food garden for the future with roots in the past.

Sustainable living has become a key driver for the future generations. Camps Bay High School is in the process of creating their very own Food Garden, which has been designed and is being built by past pupil, Ben Getz from Urban Harvest

The idea is that school's current learners, with the assistance of members of staff and the community will work the garden which will produce a bounty of fruit and vegetables that can either be used by those in need in the community, or sold, with monies raised going to help keep the garden going and help those in need in the Camps Bay Community.

The first tree in the Garden of Hope was planted on Tuesday, 15 June 2021 and dedicated to Isabella Lubczonok, a Grade 10 learner who recently passed away.

The school would like to use the Garden of Hope as an opportunity for Alumni to remember those "Gone too soon". There are many opportunities within the Garden for past pupils to remember their classmates and provide a living legacy for future generations.

These opportunities may include:

  • An outdoor classroom with pergola, amphitheatre seating and integrated raised timber beds plus lower stairway.
  • 16 raised eco-treated timber beds
  • 2 planter benches
  • 15 Fruit Trees which are already approximately 2m in height and fruit bearing. They include stakes and windbreaks for each tree
  • 15m garden hedge/windbreak. This includes 15m welded mesh fencing and shade cloth as initial wind screen whilst the hedge is growing.

All of these represent opportunities to remember past pupils "Gone too Soon". 

We need R200 000 to make this garden a reality! Donations start at R100. Once you have clicked on the donation link, you will be able to recommend past pupils you would like to honour in the garden
