Granny Mouse is “greening” it up this Arbour Week!

With National Arbour Week being held this month, Granny Mouse Country House & Spa will be getting their hands dirty by planting a number of new trees on the property, as well as decorating some of their existing, and rather prominent trees, with yellow ribbons. Not only will this mark the start of Spring, but will highlight the importance of these trees, many of which were planted on the property some 30 years ago – standing tall for all of Granny Mouse’s existence.

National Arbour Week, according to the South African Government Online, “is an opportune time to call on all South Africans to plant indigenous trees as a practical and symbolic gesture of sustainable environmental management.”

Businesses, individuals, schools and communities are encouraged to do their part and plant for National Arbour Week in order to create a greener and healthier environment and to teach others about the importance of trees in our lives.

Sean Granger, the General Manager of Granny Mouse says, “although the importance of Arbour Day seems to have been overshadowed on the calendar by many other events, we are committed to running the hotel in as green a manner as possible. This Arbour Day, we have chosen to plant trees as a Team, to signify our commitment to this movement.

The new saplings will certainly add additional charm to the already spectacular Granny Mouse Country House & Spa gardens.
