Maze Clearing with Kenya Horticultural Society and Nairobi Metropolitan Services

48 The Team of 34

Members of Kenya Horticultural Society (15), supported by over 10 members of the Nairobi Metropolitan Services Staff and volunteers from the Friends of City Park (10) once again gathered at the City Park “Mtego wa Panya” on August 24th for some weed-clearing and pruning of the overgrown Kai-apple hedges. Approximately 35 volunteers in total were in attendance, 15 more than the previous Maze clearing activity held in February this year.

The clearing, weeding and maintenance will now be a fortnightly activity led by KHS and County Staff until the Maze is able to grow back to a useable state. Among the gardening practices that will also be incorporated into the clearing is proper composting using the cleared vegetation.

Below is a compilation of ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures;
