Circles and Green Gym 4 Teens.
The Fish Hoek High girls at Zandvlei - July 2010.
In addition to the four outings presented for children from the Vrygrond library group, there were three outings for pre-schoolers and three for primary schoolers on Park Island.
The Vrygrond Library group had four outings to the Nature Reserve, with a total of 43 visits from children (most children attended more than once), and seven visits by adults from Vrygrond library (three different individuals).
It was very clear that both children and adults found Zandvlei a most therapeutic environment, appreciating the experience of beauty, peace and freedom, and loving the opportunity to discover local animals and plants. I don't think we can underestimate the ability of nearby nature to transform people's lives and dreams.
Thanks to the Zandvlei Trust, in particular Sharon McCallum for spreading the joy!
