Biodiversity Showcase Garden Environmental Education Centre<p>​We believe that through environmental education, we will form partnerships to conserve, protect, nurture and care for our environment and invoke in the youth community a sense of environmental pride and responsibility that promotes environmentally sustainable lifestyles, behaviour and actions.</p><p>The Biodiversity Showcase Garden Environmental Education Centre building was originally used as a scout hall. In 2010, it was transferred to the City’s Environmental Management Department, and is now a fully renovated centre. It is used for running environmental education programmes, especially linked to the Biodiversity Showcase Garden in the Green Point Park. It’s also an ideal venue for training, education programmes, workshops, events, private functions and team-building days.</p><p>The centre strives to implement ecological best practice principles: saving energy and water, reducing waste and protecting biodiversity. Instead of electrical heating we recommend that guests bring blankets and you are encouraged to use glass or enamelware rather than disposables. As such, crockery and cutlery are available. If disposables must be used, we recommend biodegradable products.</p>GP0|#eefb27eb-ee80-4b58-9ce0-539807249e0a;L0|#0eefb27eb-ee80-4b58-9ce0-539807249e0a|Education and training activities;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#31b82723-f130-43cd-8f0a-2117b9cfeef9;L0|#031b82723-f130-43cd-8f0a-2117b9cfeef9|Classes and workshops;GP0|#40934f2d-4025-4496-9bbe-0b96d5c12d17;L0|#040934f2d-4025-4496-9bbe-0b96d5c12d17|Functions and events;GP0|#d69df1f2-db66-49b0-a190-4601cae9653c;L0|#0d69df1f2-db66-49b0-a190-4601cae9653c|Picnics<p>For a detailed list of costs and information, please consult the application form and pamphlet in the document downloads section below.</p><h4>Paul Arends</h4><p> <em>Telephone:</em><br><em><a>021 487 2567</a> / <a>021 444 1067</a> / <a>084 232 5721</a></em></p><p> <em>Email:</em><br><a href="mailto:paul.arends@capetown.gov.za"><em>paul.arends@capetown.gov.za</em></a></p>GP0|#75b8ede1-a3f0-47fd-8726-f847ba2a4aa2;L0|#075b8ede1-a3f0-47fd-8726-f847ba2a4aa2|Audiovisual facilities;GTSet|#4be4596d-cdfe-41f7-a569-9d9c4e16c716;GP0|#74b1753a-93f4-4729-9d77-329a76215c8e;L0|#074b1753a-93f4-4729-9d77-329a76215c8e|Cleaning and cooking amenities;GP0|#49112a38-8f92-41a0-8c29-48b3379e207a;L0|#049112a38-8f92-41a0-8c29-48b3379e207a|Hall;GP0|#d662c5f6-f850-4a9d-8962-74abfbecb182;L0|#0d662c5f6-f850-4a9d-8962-74abfbecb182|Facility hire;GP0|#605eae2c-2e48-4791-aa2f-b61e8c94e9ab;L0|#0605eae2c-2e48-4791-aa2f-b61e8c94e9ab|Picnic areas<span><div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> Staff are not available unless specifically arranged and no catering and cleaning services or wood for the outdoor braai are provided.</p></div></div></span>Bill Peters Drive, Green Point<p>​Fees vary depending on the activities.</p><p>Monday to Sunday<br>08:30 – 16:00</p><img alt="" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/PublishingImages/Environmental-education-centres-Header.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
