Vegetable Gardens


The objective of these gardens is to improve the nutritional status of vulnerable people, supply vegetables to 3 nutritional kitchens, provide food for self-consumption and generate income for these individuals.

At Emthonjeni we have set aside land for sustainable vegetable gardens. Senior citizens from Zandspruit Informal Settlement are given the necessary training, seeds and tools to successfully plant their gardens.

We consider this vegetable garden to be an extremely beneficial initiative as it addresses the very real and practical nutritional needs of the aged.
