Garden Centres keep the movement supplied

Dear Global Giving Friends

one of the pillars of our work in the field is to ensure that the gardening movement that we support can have access to cheap inputs like seeds, seedlings and manure.

To this end we run two garden centres in Khayelitsha and Nyanga where anyone can come and buy these items at a very low cost. For under R20 a gardener can get a dozen healthy seedlings and five kilograms of manure, enough to plant out one home garden bed.

Here are a couple of pictures showing people queuing for manure and obtaining seelings.

The garden centre staff also offer free advice and information to anyone who is sruggling with a problem in their gardens and all of this keeps them quite busy since there are over 2000 people who come to visit the garden centres each year.

The garden centres are also the place where we hold our three day basic training courses for new would-be gardeners but this will be a subject for another report.

Thank you as always for your ongoing support, without which we would be less able to carry on our important work here in the sub economic townships of Cape Town.

Very best regards

Rob Small
