Language Excursion: World Design Capital 2014

Author: · January 24. 2014 · Language Excursions

The theme of this week was World Design Capital 2014. Our first trip was to Oranjezicht City Farm (OZCF), it is the first central city project to restore productive farming land. This excursion took us on a journey through the vision and reality of the OZCF, into urban farming, eco-systems and community development.

After thisĀ  our students went to Woodstock. We took a walk through Woodstock and had the opportunity to enjoy the amazing street art. We learned more about Woodstock and its diversity. Afterwards, we visited the Woodstock Exchange and had a look at some incredible creative businesses.

SEED is a not-for-profit ecological programme that teaches ecological literacy in schools. Its showroom is located in Mitchells Plain and we took a look there today. It is a magnificent resource, including a fully off-the-grid low-cost home, a seed bank, a food forest, a gourmet mushroom project and an outdoor classroom. Parents of the school children are involved in the project, not just the children, so the initiative takes on community building angles.
