School Farming project launched in Attridgeville

The Teenagers of the Access programme learn to respect the land and grow their own food.

The youth of the Access Project in Pretoria launched a school vegetable garden this month, led by their teacher Ms. Sanette van der Merwe.


One highlight of the day was the special guests who visited the project, including a contestant for Mrs. South Africa pageant.

The work commenced with the teens working hard to clear a patch of overgrown land, with high grass and refuse that needed moving.


Compost & Worms

The students worked in teams, with each team having a focus to work on. One team created home made compost, while another built a worm tower that would fertilise the ground in which the vegetables will grow. Other groups made bird feeders and decorative markers for each class of vegetable.


One highlight of the day was the special guests who visited the project, including a contestant for Mrs. South Africa pageant. She and Mr. Chris Dickie of BNI Verve got hands-on with the teens, planting vegetables and giving advice.
