Davley Organics was pleased to attend the 2013 Uplands Festival on the Uplands Schools campus in White River, Mpumalanga.
Run by the Parents & Teachers Association the annual festival raises funds for both the Uplands Preparatory founded in 1928, Uplands College founded in 2000 and its Outreach Institute.
With an emphasis on having fun and coming together as a community, attendance has swelled year on year. What started as a “mini-festival” is now a huge annual event, well supported by local and national business, and boasting attendance in excess of 10 000 people each year. The Uplands Festival is managed by a team of volunteer parents and teachers.
This year offered a banquet of events including shows, workshops, live music, equestrian and charity events and mountain biking and trail running for the sports enthusiasts.
Davley Organics was pleased to join the Enviro Stall and give a talk on vermiculture.
