The Archbishop of Cape Town replaces alien plants

Bishopscourt is the home of the Archbishop of Cape Town. He realised that the property was breeding alien vegetation which was beginning to spread to other properties. These aliens spread quickly and are often water-guzzlers!

So a meeting was called of the local community to explain to them what these aliens are the the problems that they cause. There was a lot of interest and many people came to the meeting and a lto of interaction took place.  This was followed by a session of getting your hands dirty as they were pulled up and replaced by indigenous plants and trees.
