TUINMAAK met Leani

Voorstelle vir punte om na te let met plante aankope

Dit is belangrik om met gesonde plante te begin. Begin met blaar kleur. Geel blare is die eerste indikasie van stres as gevolg van te veel of te min ‘n tekort aan kunsmis en water. Dit het nie betrekking op goue blaar variëteite nie.

Volgende is plant wortels. ‘n Teken van sterk wortels is klein fyn wortels wat by die dreineringsgate uit groei. Groot dik wortels wat deur die dreineringsgate groei is ‘n teken dat die plante pot gebonde is. Plante wat te lank pot gebonde is se groei word belemmer en sal nie floreer nie.

Moenie jou laat flous nie deur mooi blomme en bloeisels nie. Wanneer jy plante kies wat reeds in blom is vat eerder die plant wat een of twee bloeisels aan het. Vermei plante wat lyk of hulle al weke in blom is. Eenjarige plante kan stres en uit blom, so ook kan perenniele plante wat reeds in blom is suksesvol verplant word, maar sal nie swaar blom tot die volgende jaar nie.

Kompos verryk jou grond en verbeter die grondstrukture. ‘n Meer growwe struktuur is beter om lug en water in jou grond in te laat en vergemaklik wortel penetrasie. Kompos bevat talle ensieme en mikrovoedingstowwe wat voordelig is vir plante en bevorder ook hul immunstelsels. Kompos het ‘n neutraliserende effek op die grond pH wat die plante toelaat om voedingstowwe te absorbeer uit die grond. Kompos is natuurlik en kan as dit reg gedoen word jou beste organiese voeding vir jou tuin wees en bevat min stikstof.

Dis belangrik om plante te plant in gate van dieselfde diepte as die houer waarin jy hom gekoop het. Maak ‘n vierkantige gat eerder as ‘n baie diep gat, omdat nuwe wortels geneig is om sywaarts te groei eerder as afwaards.

Wanneer jy water gee is dit beter om die wortels nat te maak eerder as die hele plant. Probeer om die blare droog te hou om blaar-plek siektes te verhoed. Dis beter om jou plante vroeg oggend water te gee voor die temperature styg .In ‘n dorre klimaat is dit weer beter om in die aand water te gee om verdamping te verminder.

Snoei verlepte en dooie blomme en takkies om die plante te kul om nuwe lote en blomme te produseer. Dit laat jou tuin ook netjies vertoon.

Met die basiese take kan jy ‘n gesonde tuin handhaaf.

RIM OF AFRICA – EXTREME TRAIL HIKE (Part 1)

08 September 2015 – Two mountain visionaries and trailblazers, Galeo Saintz and Ivan Groenhof, together with a dedicated team of guides and advisors, are developing South Africa’s longest mountain traverse and trail initiative linking 650km of trails and ridgelines between Clanwilliam and George, called the Rim of Africa, and now they are ready for the world’s hikers to come and discover it.
“The Cape Mountains and the Rim of Africa are playing a vital role in making the Cape a desired hiking and walking destination – the Rim of Africa is the longest mountain traverse of its kind in Africa, where hikers encounter spectacular and diverse landscapes rich in biodiversity and we are on a mission to put the region and its trails on the world map,” says Saintz.

This ambitious trail and conservation project now in its sixth year of development, links existing trails right across the Cape Mountains, through multiple CapeNature reserves and across 180 private properties stretching from the Cederberg to the Outeniqua mountains.

In 2012, the Rim of Africa founders were invited to participate in the second annual World Trails Conference in South Korea, where the World Trails Network was formed. This network of the world’s leading trails and trail destinations elected Rim of Africa co-founder Galeo Saintz as its inaugural chairperson. As a result, Saintz has a unique global perspective on the value and benefits the Rim of Africa can deliver to the Cape Mountains.

“We have learnt from and follow the inspiration of other mega-distance hikes from around the world,” says Saintz, “but, the Rim of Africa is also playing a major role in the burgeoning development of the world’s global trails industry, and it will put Africa on the map as far as mega-distance trails go.”

“Trails when correctly developed deliver tangible benefits to landowners and communities living close to the trail infrastructure. Ecotourism is a product South Africa needs to continually invest in. Trails are a global contributor to the world’s adventure tourism market and form the backbone to many activities that take place on them from day hikes to interpretive guiding, to trail running events, etc. They can be an important contributor to the rural economy in the Cape.”

Co-founder Ivan Groenhof, a dedicated hiker who originally envisaged the project agrees: “Through our partners, including the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, CapeNature, local community forums and regional tourism authorities and with financial support from boot and apparel brand Hi-Tec South Africa, we are now in a position to further develop our community projects.
“This initiative is as much about the future as the present – Linking trails to conservation and involving communities, helps us to build a new generation of nature champions as the trail experience is all about reconnecting with nature, our mountains and each other.

“The Western Cape’s mountains are a valuable heritage with rich cultural and biodiversity elements and a tourism potential that offer many opportunities. Our collaborators in CapeNature understand this and are willing to support our efforts and show the powerful impact state and NGO collaboration can have.”

Rim of Africa is a movement and a trails project that really belongs to the people. A non-profit trust oversees the project implementation, planning and coordination, and works to empower local communities with the skills and capacity to be custodians of their section of the route. Money raised goes directly back into supporting the vision and goals to make the Cape Mountains a global trails destination.

“We like to think of the Rim of Africa as a necklace of trails extending along the Cape Mountains, with the beads or gems being the biodiversity, the vistas, the communities, the rivers and waterfalls that hikers experience along the way,” comments Groenhof.

A letter from Louis

Mother Nature invites us to come and play with Her. She reacts so abundantly when we pull the right strings.

Grow the Soil and the Plants grow themselves.
The nature of Nature is incredible.
It’s like invisible gears.

For example… Dandelion is a soil builder and not a weed… it’s got ten times more nutrition than spinach… (The ones growing in shade are the ones I eat. Full sun ones are bitter.)

The seed can only germinate when the right mineral deficiencies are present. The intelligence of the seed picks it up and germinate. The roots grow down in search for the right minerals and bring it up, fertilizing the soil with its leaves and roots.
Many of the other “weeds” do similar work. The seeds can be dormant on the soil for years until the right conditions are present, then it germinates and starts fixing the soil.

For example… Peanut butter cassia: Senna didymobotrya is a weed that grows next to the roads in Transkei (also other places). It grows there because the topsoil has been removed and bottom soil is open. Now the mineral deficiencies are present and the seeds grow. The plant is a legume (all plants with seed pods are) and fix the nitrogen in the soil.

Micro organisms… in a teaspoon of forest soil you can get up to 6 000 000 micro organisms… in a teaspoon of mono crop soil you can get 3 – 20 micro organisms. The chemical fertilizer is killing it!!
NPK chemical fertilizer is making rich fathers and poor sons!!

Indigenous Micro Organisms and Compost Tea can fix this. Compost is cool but hard to make lots and lots of it. Besides, there is about 70% Nitrogen in the air you breathe. The problem is that the micro organisms which harvest it and makes it available for the plant is Dead.
All the minerals are present in the sand particles, stones and rocks, but the micro organisms which extract it is … Dead… because of the chemical fertilizers and pesticide and poison in the soil and water now.
The forest is always green, who waters it?
But it’s green … who fertilizes it?
Who put pesticide… I never see a pest in the forest?
Who plant the small trees I see there?
How long has it been there??
So… maybe we must start to farm like the forest?
The forest is a University!! It functions like gears. Mass biodiversity oils them.

VODACOM WIL VERBETER IN VAKANSIEPLEKKE

Die Valies en Vrystaters sal in hul komende Kaapse seevakansie na hartelus kan Facebook, Twitter en foto’s oplaai.
Die selfoonoperateur Vodacom gaan mobiele selfoontorings by gewilde vakansiedorpe soos Hermanus, Onrus en Stilbaai, asook aan die Weskus oprig om sy netwerk in die Desembervakansie in dié gebiede te versterk.
Alberts Breed, bestuurder van Vodacom in die Wes-Kaap, sê van die dorpe met sowat 10 000 inwoners het in vakansietye tot dubbel soveel mense. Vodacom het in die verlede probleme gehad om die skerp groei in data- en selfoongebruik in dié tyd te hanteer. Tydelike basisstasies gaan gebruik word wat ná die vakansie ook by spesiale geleenthede soos feeste of sportgeleenthede gebruik kan word waar ’n hoë vraag na breëband-internettoegang verwag word. “Elke kind het ’n foon en wil op Facebook gaan en foto’s oplaai, so ons wil die vermoë hê om dié groeiende dataverkeer te kan hanteer.” Volgens Breed gaan R180 miljoen nog in dié boekjaar in die Wes-Kaap bestee word om meer as 400 ekstra basisstasies op te rig. Die grootste struikelblok is inwoners wat gekant is teen die bou van basisstasies naby hulle weens vrese oor bestraling en die estetika. Maar Breed verduidelik as daar meer basisstasies in ’n gebied is, hoef die selfoon wat jy teen jou kop hou nie so hard te werk op soek na ’n sein nie. Die batteryleeftyd is langer, en die spoed en dekking van die netwerk is beter.
