Comments Please!

SAPRA has been approached by SGI - South Africa to establish a community garden in SAPRA-land. SGI stands for "Soka Gakkai International" which is a faith based organisation. You can read about it by clicking here.

Their plan is to grow perishable, vitamin-rich foods close to our community - they are thinking about using the old bowling greens at the SGI centre. For those who don't know where that is, it is bounded by Blandford Road, Wells Avenue and Dudley Road, Parkwood. They want to mobilise our community in a teaching and charity initiative. You can read more about the proposal by clicking here.

Now we are soliciting views and comments from our residents to the idea. You can add your comments on our chat page on this website.

So, what are your thoughts?
