Project Area: A. Mount Moreland
Situated in a 'Green Lung' environment and Conservation area, surrounded by hectares of natural wetlands, Lake
Victoria, Froggy Pond and the Mdolti River forming part of the DMOSS (Durban Metropolitan Open Space System) the
setting adds a total uniqueness to this pristine area.
The majority of the 157 residential erven in the Mount Moreland village are held in private ownership which are
either developed with houses or are vacant.17 years ago we planted some of the verges and parks with indigenous
trees and shrubs, at the same time removing vast amounts of Guava, syringe and pepper trees. Because of the
elevated height of the two hills that make up Mount Moreland it is imperative to eradicate all alien infestation to
prevent further contamination on the lower slopes and ultimately the wetlands.
* Embark on an intense alien champagne, educating the residents and land owners about the damage the alien species
are creating in our area. Encourage participation, clean up and removal of invaders, praise all effort, keep a map
reference as to which sections are alien free.
* Establish data base of all property owners, set up website, email newsletters, Notice board, apply persuasive
pressure, make interesting and fun, distributre brochures. Educate and train about aliens and what indigenous
vegetation to introduce to the Mount Moreland gardens and conservancy area.
* Public and personal presentations, consultations, workshops.
Set up data base, Website, Signage, brochure, graphic design, lists and graphics of Aliens and indigenous
Compost, Herbicide, Indigenous Plants for rehabilitation
