In 2016, 15 Resident Associations (RA’s) and 2 special interest groups met at 15 points along the Braamfontein and Klein Jukskei Spruits to participate in a mass action clean-up campaign. Approximately 632 volunteers descended on the Spruit to play their part in creating a cleaner and greener space for all. Alien vegetation was removed, 47 trees were planted and bollards were installed in two areas.

We intend for 2017 to be no different and for an even greater impact to be made. Spruit Day is a coordinated restoration, improvement and clean-up of the Spruit. It creates an excellent opportunity for those living in your neighbourhood to spend a morning together making a difference in your RA and getting to know one another.

In order for Spruit Day to have a greater reach this year, we’d like to see all RA’s along the Spruit get involved in some way on the day, even if your zone along the Spruit is small. This what you need to do in order to participate:

1. Select a Spruit Day representative/contact person in your RA team.

2. Complete this online Analysis Form here. The information in this analysis helps us understand the current state of the Spruit in your area and therefore the impact of the activities on Spruit Day. We really appreciate your time in completing this. It should take about 30 minutes maximum if all details are completed

3. Get business or residents in your area to contribute towards the activities that you’ll be doing through sponsorships

4. Recruit volunteers through channels that work best in your area. A great way to create excitement is on social media (please be sure to share your social media handles with us so that we can tag your RA)

5. Support the overall Spruit Day 2017 marketing campaign by liking and sharing posts on social media
