RENU-KAROO is developing indigenous seed orchards and local skills to restore mining and grazing damage in arid Karoo rangeland. Mission: To make ecological restoration with locally indigenous plants a sought-after service in the Central Karoo, thereby sustaining ecological services and generating new livelihoods. Vision: To supply locally indigenous seeds and plants and to develop expertise in seed collection, horticulture, and veld restoration within the village of Prince Albert, and in the surrounding Karoo. We will establish demonstration trials and involve students in restoration research in order to develop our knowledge base. These notes give a brief introduction to common veld problems and their treatment.
