Having worked predominantly in rural landscapes, Living Lands has begun work in an urban landscape. Khayelitsha is a partially informal township located about 30km south-east of Cape Town. We have started work in ward 89 where there is a heavily polluted wetland which may be hazardous to the residents. We are working with the ward councillor and the community to raise awareness on the benefits a clean wetland can offer to the people. We look forward to exploring possibilities to expand this work and intend for this current project to l pave way for future work on other wetlands in the wider Khayelitsha area.
