Gardening & hydroponics

Mamelodi Community Garden Project.

Ten participants were chosen to be trained in hydroponic gardening in Mamelodi. Derelict and neglected tunnels behind a school were selected and upgraded through funding from National Lotteries Commission. JoJo Tanks sponsored tanks and MayFord sponsored seed. The participants received training and was monitored weekly by the Department of Agricultures social ecologist. They succeeded in producing vegetables and selling to local super markets and vendors.
