LAKE FARM GOES GREEN!

Lake Farm's "go green" progress

How can you support us and help conserve nature?

Re-Cycling Project: We only receive sorted "clean" re-cyclable waste material form registered "partners"
 
The Centre started a recycling project in April 2009, and 50% of our waste material now gets re-cycled by the Waste Management Company.
We register  "recyclers" to ensure we receive only sorted and clean waste.  We save money, protect and preserve nature and the planet.
 
Solar geysers:
 
The Centre replaces old geysers with solar geysers, doing a few a year.
 
Compost and earth-worm farming:
 
Our vegetable garden makes its own compost, uses cattle dung and very little insecticides and tries to farm organic.
We now also have small scale earth-worm farming.
 
Lake and nature conservation:
 
We support and assist with the preservation and protection of our natural lake in co-operation with other land owners who contracted with Algoa Angling Club to manage the lake area for us.
 
Alien plants and water conservation:
 
We attempt to control alien invaders and poisonous trees but need the help of volunteers to really make an impact.
 
Rain water recycling:

We have a system that directs rain water into our dam and from there we irrigate our veggie garden.
Rain water tanks help to conserve water and we would welcome a sponsor to assist us with the donation of these tanks. 
 
Sewerage:

Lake Farm Centre has it's own sewerage plant, independent of the municipality and we pump all recycled sewerage water into our own dam for re-use on the farm.
