The Child believes that time is measured by actions, movement, how long (or short) it will be and it’s importance.  “Time to wake up, to eat, sleep, to go to the park or to work.”  Often, many parents/guardians say things like, “we will leave in 5 minutes.” This is meaningless

How gardens teach us

How Gardens Help Us

Not only is gardening fun, but it also helps keep us fit and gets our body moving. To be immunologically fit, you need to be physically fit. “White blood cells can be quite sedentary,” says Prof Arne Akbar, the president of the British Society for Immunology and a professor at University College, London. “Exercise mobilises them by increasing your blood flow, so they can do their surveillance jobs and seek and destroy (bacteria and germs) in other parts of the body.” (read more..) Obviously, a strong immune system is the No. 1 barrier to surviving the Corona Virus attacks.

The Water Cycles are Changing

The Water Cycle is Changing

The sudden abundance of water got me thinking about where it all comes from and how easily we take it for granted.  Let us not forget the hot, dry days of “Day Zero”.  Did you know that the Mayor of Vancouver was interviewed on Cape Talk last year describing how his city is in very much similar a situation that we had been, and how the citizens were following in our footsteps to conserve their water as successfully as we did ours.

What Would a Hatchling Want?

What would a Turtle Hatchling want?

This week, we continue our fight against plastics with a focus on Turtles and their significance in the Eco-system.  Society appears to be accepting the mind-set change required to reduce plastic usage, i.e. the recent British Golfing Open banned the use of plastic bottles and straws.

Eco Bricks - the only way we can reuse thin plastic like cling film, without it affecting the earth, from the Keep the Beach Clean book

Keep the Beach Clean

When our team did our Mandela Day Wetlands Clean-up last week, we were confronted with a similar number of tiny bits of plastic in between the reeds of vlei.  That was when we realised how our perceptions are slanted to what we want to see, not to the reality.  Because we do not necessarily see big plastic bottles, etc; we assume that the beach or vlei is clean.   But when you get down onto your knees, you begin to realise how real the stories on mainstream media about the microscopic danger to marine life, are.
