THE JOURNEY

Thembani Primary School is a government school situated at the Langa Township, Cape Town. 

The school was introduced to Call 2 Care through Adventure Works in March 2019, with the request for a sustainable Vegetable Garden.

The iGardi Project incepted at Thembani Primary School on the 15 March 2019 with a large international tour group from Adventure Works, who wanted to give back to a local school.  

Currently, the iGardi Project runs an eco-learning program at the school with 15 learners and the care-takers of the garden. 

There are currently 20 iGardi Food Gardens, and 9 Trench beds at the garden, that are yielding enough food for 2080 learners annually.
