"Our learners come from poor backgrounds. Some of them are from child-headed families. Some of them come to school on empty stomachs. So, we started the permaculture food garden," shared Ms Busi Maditsi, an educator at Elizabeth Matsemela Secondary School in Soshanguve, Pretoria. Their ...food security project started in 2017 and, through the support of Food & Trees for Africa and the #EduPlant programme, as well as the hard work of the learners and project leaders, has flourished!Everyone involved is putting their permaculture knowledge and new skills to good use, making compost, mulching, creating raised beds, companion planting, and so much more. These days, fewer learners go home hungry.
