The Food Garden Begins...

All the residents were invited to have a vegetable plot in the food garden for a nominal fee of R20 to cover running costs. At the end of the digging, we had over 30 plots. 15 Adults and 14 children have taken plots. The remaining plots will be taken care of communally by the food garden group.

The children were excited at the idea of having their own vegetable plot. They enthusiastically helped to fill the trenches.

Final addition of soil and compost being added to one of the residents' vegetable plots.

The trenches are filled with layers of 'dry brown' and 'green wet' and topped with soil and compost.
