New Year ... New Beginnings!

Thanks to donations (both local and abroad), we have been able to put up 3 new benches and begin to work on the pond area (the pond was also donated).

And finally... our Food Garden fence is up! With thanks to Mr.Morkel and the City Council who provided the materials and to several residents who provided the labour!

Soon the gates (also donated) will be fitted, after they have been cut to size.

The Food Garden Committee will be meeting on 26 January for the first time to begin planning. We need a ton of organic waste for the deep trench gardening (which is essential due to the soil consisting mainly of gravel and sea sand!). We will have to mobilize the community and approach vegetable vendors to make this happen.
