UK youth team create 60 vegetable gardens in Munsieville

In one week the hardworking Chesham Churches Youth Team built 60 family vegetable gardens and planted three huge school gardens. On 18 July they were joined by volunteers from power generation company, Eskom, marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela by serving the community. School kitchens often struggle with a very limited budget, the vegetable variety is usually restricted to cabbage and onions. The new beds contain spinach, beetroot, lettuce, kale and a wide variety of healthy indigenous leafy vegetables.
