The Elliot Team established their food garden to save money by growing fresh vegetables instead of buying from the shops.

The team began harvesting before the COVID-19 lockdown and managed to harvest enough potatoes for each participant to take home a bag of potatoes. They were also able to contribute some of their harvest to their community and donated produce to a local school and an old age home.

Now that they are back at base, they will continue harvesting and donating to the community. The participants say they are grateful to the Base Manager, Mr Muller, for approving the space in which to establish the food garden.
