Robin & Trish Baragwanath have been employed with National Lotteries Funds during March and April 2004 to rid the Haenertsburg grassland of the worst 11 alien invader plants. These plants out compete indigenous plants and in some cases also change the soil composition to suit their own progeny.
The artist of this cartoon Michele Thompson grew up on Wegraakbosch Organic Farm and has explored the mountain and its precious wildlife with her family. She matriculated from Standford Lake College in 2003. She has recently left the mountain to au pair for a family in Zurich. Michele has also designed the grassland guardian motive which will be awarded to those who would like to show a commitment to preserving the afromontane grassland of Haenertsburg by removing invasive plants from their gardens.
