What an incredible day spent with Adventure Works and Xylem Watermark, harvesting produce, planting trees and produce, and implementing 3 water-wise iGardi vegetable Gardens at St Joseph's School for the Chronically ill.
With over 45 delegates and 60 children everyone had a hand in maintaining the existing garden harvesting carrots, spinach and lettuce and onions.
The existing garden is used as an educational and therapy tool and all produce feeds the children in the feeding scheme.
Thanks to Greenpop, 7 indigenous Wild Olive Trees and Wit Karee Trees were planted and a pledge was taken with all the children's fingerprints that they would look after the garden and trees. 3 raised iGardi Food Gardens were implemented in a step by step fashion that are now accessible to the children in wheelchairs and that will save 70% annually in our existing drought.
At the event, the project concluded with all delegates planting new vegetable seedlings using the square foot gardening method and companion planting method.
It was an absolutely incredible day of learning and creating together. A huge thank you to Adventure Works, the Xylem Group and Greenpop for their contributions to the day.
What a difference it made!
