Low cost housing developments in dire need of "greening":
During development of low cost housing development in South Africa, natural biodiversity is completely stripped. In a specific area (Witsand near Atlantis, Western Cape), the lack of natural biodiversity has caused major damage to house structures due to wind and rain erosion.
By planting gardens for 200 houses, Green Communities will strive to stabilise the soil and mitigate other effects of climate change, promote food security through vegetable gardening and motivate economic development. Other than that, the area will be beautified and biodiversity reestablished.
