Gardens for Homes with Tiger Brands
This gardens for homes project builds on the impact already achieved and extends it to the community. Local community members have been trained to help residents establish their gardens. These community members (Community Educators) will be involved in monitoring the gardens going forward.
On the 6th of April, a total of 500 home gardens were distributed to local community members to establish their gardens. It was a phenomenal day of activity, where community members arrived to collect their gardens. Each household received compost, fertiliser, herbs, seeds, a bucket, watering can and hand tools to start their garden. FTFA facilitators visited the gardens one week later and were happy to find thriving seedlings, germinating seeds, and innovative containers used to extend growing space.
We look forward to returning in spring for harvest and replanting of vegetables.
