Greening South Africas Schools
Outreach Greening

We guide participating schools through the process of developing their own indigenous water wise gardens. Establishing an indigenous school garden is a wonderful opportunity for involving the community to create a greener and healthier environment. The indigenous garden also serves as educational tool for teaching and learning. (Include Photo)

A Greening Manual for South African Schools
The resource pack, Greening South African Schools, is a must for all schools. It includes an easy to follow gardening manual, as well as ready prepared lesson unit plans. The lessons serve the outcomes from the Revised National Curriculum and will be fun to do with all learners from Gr. 0-9. It includes activities such as planning a garden, exploring South Africas Biomes, organising an environmental day and propagating plants to sell.
