iGardi- Waste to Food Programme is a collaborative project between Partners: Waste-ED, Call 2 Care, SABIC Corporate, WCG, and Windmeul Primary in the Western Cape.
The school Windmeul is near Wellington & Paarl. The project involved the collection of waste material to make eco-bricks to make plots & plaster them with a mixture of sand and straw. Also been using wooden boxes to grow vegetables. This demonstrates the link between food production, water conservation & environmental activities.
This project is now expanding to implement and share the Amanzi for Food Rainwater Harvesting and Conservation practices and resources to add value and ensure the project’s sustainability. We will report on the project’s progress as it unfolds.
