The Gardening Initiative, April 2009

Hand & Heart partnered with 3 other businesses in South Africa and over 40 volunteers and ran a weekend long educational farming initiative at Botshabelo Orphanage.   Our goal was to teach the staff and kids at Botshabelo Orphanage cost effective farming techniques and in the process fill the empty greenhouses at the orphanage with fresh new veggies and plants.   While the older kids were hands-on learning the techniques and farming, the little ones were watching and learning and also painting veggies and being taught basic nutrition facts.   The project was a huge success and was filmed and written about in local newspapers.   Hand & Heart and our partners supplied all the materials needed for the weekend and donated plenty of much needed supplies and products to the orphanage to use and consume.   It was a great weekend and we had lots of fun!
