School Food Garden Project - Zastron

 In 2009 the foundation trained 2 young people from Zastron in Permaculture Design  after which they took this knowledge home to the rural village of Zastron in the Free State, where they established food gardens in the local clinic, as well the Samuel Johnson Middle School and Zama Primary school. 

We bought a new school bus for the pupils of Samuel Johnson school who had to walk to school from farms many kilometres away.

The foundation also bought a 340 square metre plot of land to grow food for a local orphanage, as well as have short training workshops for people from the Zastron townships.
