The KwaZulu-Natal Shongweni Team, which held the Food Security Workshop earlier in September 2019, has already started reaping the benefits of their organic garden. The team reaped the first harvest of spinach, which they shared among themselves. The rest of the food from the garden will be sold or donated to needy families or schools in the community. The team invited the WOF Girls and Boys Scouts to help out during one of the daily maintenance routines the team does in the garden.
“The team taught the Kids how to cultivate the plants, how to make compost and the identification of plants they were not aware of. This will also encourage them to start their own gardens at home,” says KZN SDP Sabelo Buthelezi.
