This is a drawing that I made yesterday of the Greyton Green Park in South Africa. In 2012 my friends and I organized a festival at the local dumping site to raise awareness, confront wastefulness and offer a colorful alternative to detrimental waste mismanagement.
We built a stage, workshop space and composting toilet stalls from dumpsite materials and upcycled waste. Last year we built a market stall area, expanded the workshop area and stuccoed the walls of the toilet stalls. This year more constructions are being added, and the others are being renovated in time for the third Trash to Treasure Festival on April 12th.
Please contact me if you would like to get involved in this effort in any way, shape or form, and check out the website at trashtotreasurefest.org
