LEARN 2 LIVE VEGETABLE GARDEN PROJECTCasidra
LEARN 2 LIVE is a community organisation situated at Wallacedene, which has established a vegetable garden to empower its community.
The project was funded by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture’s Comprehensive Agricultural Support Programme for R44 000. Casidra, as the implementing agent, with Cynthia Lebenya as the Project Manager, used the funding to procure the field irrigation system, protective clothing and production inputs.
The project currently produces vegetables and has established a medicinal garden. The project provides basic agricultural training to the community members, nearby schools and crèche by using some of the funded items as part of the training. The project also provides food, harvested from the garden, for children in the community.
Well done to all the relevant role-players for making a success of this project!
