Forest and farms of the George campus of Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University

Vicki McKenna took some photographs on our tour of the forest preserve and farm on the George campus of Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.

Learning about the forest of the Southern Cape.

A Terrascope Radio student recording our guide.

Professor Raymond Auerbach showing us the plan for the test plot.

Professor Auerbach talks about the permaculture structure.  This features a partial roof feeds a large rain barrel.  The rain barrel supplies water to the irrigation system, which is powered by solar power (with a solar panel on the roof).  Solar power also powers the electric fence, which keeps out baboons.

All photographs are by Vicki McKenna.
