Heritage Food Gardening Workshop in Diepsloot and Alexandra to promote Rainwater Harvesting and Conservation practices.
Dr Wilma van Staden and Prof Rob O’Donoghue presented a Heritage Food Gardening Workshop at LEAP 4 in Diepsloot and LEAP 3 in Alexandra, Gauteng, on 21 and 22 July. Twenty-eight teachers, garden technicians and education coordinators participated in the workshop. The main topics include utilising heritage gardening as a curriculum activation tool. Each school will upgrade their existing garden to teach the curriculum. Teachers will focus on developing lessons and assessments using the garden as a teaching aid. The Amanzi for Food Online Training of Trainers course will support the gardening technicians to learn more about RWH & C practices and the WRC resources and implement their Amanzi for Food Change Project in the LEAP schools.
