A vegetable garden has been established at the new Jeffreys Bay High School.

Local permaculture expert Paulene Plaatjies started the garden in May and already spinach, cauliflower, lettuce, onions, carrots and tomatoes have taken root in the organically-prepared soil.

Local Economic Development (LED) Portfolio Councillor, Phumzile Oliphant, visited the garden on Monday, along with a team from Vlakteplaas Quarry.

Oliphant said Vlakteplaas was driving the project as part of the company’s social responsibility programme.

“The municipality helped to facilitate the arrangement. We are truly impressed by what has been achieved in such a short time,” he said.

He said the vegetables would be used to prepare meals for the learners. Any surplus will be sold to raise funds for the school.

Learners have also been helping in the garden and learning about the best ways to grow vegetables, from preparing the soil to planting the seedlings and seed.

“This is information and skills our young people can use at home or in their future studies. Food security is of great importance in developing countries and these are the types of programmes that can make a big difference in the daily lives of communities,” he concluded.
