School gardens emerge at 5 Junior Ranger schools

June 2021

The vegetable project is in full swing!
The dedicated trainers of the partner organization FEYS have laid the foundation for the beds at the five schools participating in the project "Sustainable Nutrition for Children, Youth and Young Adults". Thus, school gardens with vegetables and fruit trees are gradually being created at the primary schools Thito, Andrew Willow, Gxhabara, Thamalakane and Mathiba.
At the same time, the project garden on the association's premises was expanded and a large community garden was planted for the 10 trainers on the premises, which will ensure their long-term supply.
The practical sessions for the junior rangers have also already begun. The children are fully engaged and are learning all about sowing seeds, proper soil, staking out beds, and how to use tools for gardening from the very beginning. In the coming weeks, the beds will be watered, tended, and tree seedlings will be grown in pots. In the theoretical educational units, the Junior Rangers learn to further process the vegetables and fruits they have grown themselves for a balanced diet.
