These are our iGardiologists for the 1st Term, and they have been learning heaps! Week 1 was an overall welcome and orientation to the program! This included a treat sheet incentive poster where prizes are allocated throughout the program for the highest achieving iGardiologist and to the team that works together the most.

Week 2 was all about composting, decomposing, microorganisms and waste-wise practises in the garden. The iGardiologists created their own composter, where every time they are in the garden, they take the kitchen waste to the composter to create fertile soil for their veggies.

This week (week 3) we focused on the preparation of our soil, to ensure we have healthy vegetables. All iGardiologists create their own trench garden bed from scratch and layer it with material that will decompose under the vegetables. We call these beds, our lasagna garden beds!

Our iGardi Mentor and Coach - Zipho Khini, absolutely loves spending time with the iGardiologists. The next 5 weeks are jam-packed with goodness for the learners, and we cannot wait to share it all with you.

To support these learners, or sponsor an iGardiologist in a school in need, please consider a monthly contribution to the program. All our programs are funded externally, and without this support, we cannot reach further.
