Growing Vegetables the green way

Growing Vegetables for our feeding scheme

Apart from assisting in becoming more self sufficient, this project will teach children to not only grow vegetables for use at the school, but how to use recycled items as the planters and drip feeders.

We have the ideal area at the Ubunye Educare Centre which we want to use to start a vegetable garden.

The area earmarked for the vegetable garden

We are looking for wood, screw & wood sealer for the raised stands, as well as a handy man (or 2) who can build the stands for us. Donations of seeds, seedlings, and composted soil will also be very welcome.

The children will collect the containers, and will assist with the planting of the seeds. They will learn how to use water from the kitchen and bathrooms to water the garden.

This project will ensure a degree of self-sustainability by growing and cultivating our own food, and at the same time teach the children important skills and lessons. This project could also encourage children to teach their parents at home that they can grow their own vegetables.
