Each class (but the 4th year) have the responsability of a vegetables garden.
There are 5 of them of 625 m2 each. One of those is equipped with drip irrigation. We have received funding for a 6th garden also equipped of drip irrigation which will be installed in April 2021.
This 6th garden will be mainly to grow local vegetables such as "afrivan cabbage" (local name:winwin).
We can have 3 harvests during the school year. During the rainy season the gardens are used to produced crops growing during the rainy season.
To maintain the quality of the ground of those gardens, the students are producing compost used to fertilised the gardens.
Produced vegetables are not sold but used in the food given to the students. In order to give awareness to the students about entrepreneurship, the produced vegetables are valorised and compared to the input costs.
The main objective is that each student knows how to grow different type of vegetables and understand which ones are the more profitable to grow.
