Application of high-density grazing approach for improved rangeland condition and restoration of wetlands for improved water supply
Project is application of high-density grazing approach at the watershed, downstream of which are patches of wetlands whose water is demanded for irrigation on horticultural initiatives, consisting of a botanical garden, nursery, green-houses, an orchard and a vegetable garden, by the Bolokanang Liphamola Support Group, which is an association with the objective of addressing vulnerability of livelihoods in the village and its environs.
The community therefore is seeking support and means to try and address the health requirements through provision of fresh fruits, vegetables and medicinal products to support address the needs of vulnerable groups, incorporating the old and infirm, orphans and the HIV scourge in the sub-region. They propose to proceed with access to grazing land on which high-density grazing will be practiced, at the bottom of which + 8 wetlands already exist, that will be maintained, below which a botanical garden, nursery, green-house, a vegetable garden and an orchard will be supplied with a constant source of water from the wetlands through irrigation.
