COMMUNITY GARDENS


Kovsie ACT, in collaboration with the Centre for Sustainable Agriculture, Rural Development and Extension links with the university’s Food Environment task team, which includes the No Student Hungry (NSH) programme and the Central Foodbank.

This operation aims to contribute to food security on campus.  To ensure that food-insecure students with strong academic records are adequately nourished and thereby keeping them at the university and increasing their chances of academic completion and success. 

If all residences and off-campus communities participate, we will have over 30 vegetable gardens; we should therefore be able to feed hundreds of students on a weekly basis.

The outcomes of this project are endless; it will teach students the value of recycling, and serves as a life lesson on sustainability.

This is a long-term project and will not serve as a quick solution, but rather a lasting solution.
