The Rust de Winter Team in Gauteng underwent five days of training on how to start their own organic food gardens at the base and at their homes. The aim was also to roll the project to other bases around the province. The team was actively involved in the establishment of the garden and most of them appreciated the opportunity as they have realised the importance of learning organic food gardening.

“WOF food security is important because we want to see to it that our participants have safe nutritional food. As WOF we want to make a difference in the lives of our participants and their families and the surrounding community”. The Rust de Winter firefighters can now implement food gardens at their homes and at the base with the skills that they have learnt and, along with their families, will soon experience the benefits of improved nutrition. The whole team is actively involved in the establishment of the garden and their teamwork and team spirit will ensure the future success of the garden.
