January report: A-maize-ing harvest boosted by irrigation and planning

Moet has an irrigation scheme where a number of crops such as tomatoes and maize are grown. The school garden has been boosted by the rains from last year. It continues to prove a great way for the children to learn about farming and planning. In fact, we often find that our crops are ready before local farms because of the planning and the irrigation system that we have built.  We continue to learn about permaculture on a daily basis, but using our resources wisely is something we are very proud of. … Read More

That is the reason why the standard six class of Mr. Mlenga went to the school gardens today and had a lesson of agriculture there to combine theoretical information with some first hand experience. Little learner’s expertise  On our way there, one little boy walking right next to me already told me the names of almost all plants on our way and even how to take care of them. The learners expertise when it comes to the issue… Read More

Students were also given food whilst they attended the lessons during the holidays. … Read More
