What do UCT students do?

By Roxanne Daniels

The excited Masters students from the Percy Fitzpatrick Institute at the University of Cape Town (UCT) travelled on a very hot day to Worcester on Wednesday 1 April to see and learn about the succulents at the Karoo Desert Botanical Gardens. They stopped along the way at a petrol station and inevitably bought some crunchy ‘padkos’. Their current course lecturer, Timm Hoffman, accompanied them and after being shown around and encouraged to ‘interact’ with the South African succulents, they were led to the ‘for sale’ section where they were to choose their favourite succulent and purchase it. The purchasing process was accompanied by being issued with a licence to own the plant. The plants were carefully put into the back of one of the vehicles to ensure their safety for the trip back to UCT.
