Report back: End of Year Gathering: Day of Reconciliation 2017 at the Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve
We began with a hike into the nature reserve entering a mosaic of coastal grasslands and forests, encountering the many species of plants and animals. Notable animals that were spotted during the hike included: zebra, impala, bushbuck, mongoose, and reed cormorant. After the hike we had a discussion around naming the network. I put forward the suggestion of naming the network, "Terra Viva Collective" linking it with the signing of the Terra Viva – A people’s pact to protect the planet and each other (1) and using/adapting the Terra Viva Manifesto as a workable framework for future community programmes and projects (2). We closed off with a Surplus Bring n Share Lunch and seed swap. 'Blak Born-free' read out the Pact for the Earth. Aveen also demonstrated his DIY hydroponics lettuce!
