30/11/2014 - A report back for the last few months.

During October to November the trainees assisted in eleven camps and therefore all trainees have attended at least two or three camps.

On the 15 October the trainees attended the second enrichment session at False Bay Camping Site. During this session Mr Peter Sharples demonstrated and taught them about the Wonderbag and how to use it. The trainees will also continue to work on their Holiday Programme in December.

On the 23 October the trainees attended a third enrichment session. The programme was divided into two sessions. During the morning Ms Taryn van Neel (Eco Schools Coordinator) gave the trainees a talk on what the Eco School programme is about, how we can help the Eco Schools and why the schools use vegetable gardens and what is a vegetable garden. The trainees visited Spineview Primary School in the afternoon where they assisted the Eco Club learners with preparing the vegetable beds and to beautify the surrounding area.

On the 28 November the trainees attended a fourth enrichment session at the Goldfields Centre, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. They were taught about sustainable usage of plants and how plants can be used in an environmental education programme.

All trainees have gone on four mentorship programmes.

Two trainees have left the programme and the total amount of trainees left on the programme is 15.
