ABOUT Marconi Beam
Marconi Beam Primary school is a local primary school in Joe Slovo, a lower socio-economic community in the suburbs of Cape Town. The school educates children from poorly resourced areas by providing lunchtime meals on a daily basis to xxx children. The feeding scheme is a key part of this process, and Marconi Beam Primary School was established in 1979 to meet this need.
Meeting the need
Outside the Primary school exists a fully sustainable vegetable garden that is plugged into the existing feeding scheme and used in as an educational and therapy tool for the learners. Currently all students have access to the garden and visit the garden during learning time, but all gardens are ground level and are inaccessible to the learners in wheelchairs. There are currently 50 learners in wheel chairs that cannot partake in the gardening curriculum.
