Initiated in 2002 by the highly active environmental NGO Somarelang Tikologo, Gaborone’s Ecological Park – situated on the corner of South Ring Road and Kaunda Road – is a welcome retreat for city dwellers. It also is a highly instructive facility that familiarises visitors with simple but effective technologies for resource conservation and waste management. The park has been developed to inspire people to live in an environmentally friendly life, whilst at the same time save money.
Transforming a once idle open space into an oasis of eco-friendly technologies, the facilities on offer are wide ranging and exemplary. They include: The Green Shop, selling a unique assortment of products made from natural or recycled materials, such as jewellery, hats, mats, bags, aprons, waste bins and children’s mobiles, as well as sweets and snacks made from desert fruits; the Drop Off and Recycling Centre, the only such facility of its kind in the city.
The Organic Garden, demonstrating low water usage, water recycling / harvesting, organic growing techniques, organic pesticides, and selling fresh organic vegetables once a week; and the Children’s Playground, made from recycled and natural products. T
