A MyCapeTown selected video about Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden:
Kirstenbosch, our National Botanical gardens in CapeTown, South Africa, is being sprayed with Round Up.
Round Up is a product of Monsanto, a broad spectrum herbicide with the active ingredient glysphosphate.
Round Up has not been proven 100% safe for humans or our environment.
There have been severe health impacts on the environments and people who repetitively come in close contact with this chemical.
So what happens to that clean spring water we drink? Or the different species in that area? And to those who habitually walk barefoot with their children through the gardens?
Documentary filmmaker Renée Scheltema meets Nirmala Nair, of the School of Practical Sustainability, during the filming of her Environmental Feature Documentary.
