How Agri Services make a difference
One of our current highlights is the development of tunnel food garden systems at five schools in the City of Tshwane for Mercedes-Benz-Financial Services. The gardens have been flourishing and all the delicious, naturally grown vegetables are used in the schools’ feeding schemes to keep the young learners well nourished.
Imperative to the success of any project is the upskilling of its project members. Ekukhanyeni prides itself in having a Team of experienced training Facilitators who can offer accredited training, as well as mentorship and one-on-one contact sessions with project members to improve their own experience within their food gardens and to ensure that members are sustainable in terms of food security, health and sustainable livelihoods.
