Masithuthukisane Garden 2016

Hi Fellow Gardeners:

HURRAH! The sunflowers have begun to peek out and show their faces.  Absolutely beautiful.  The really great thing is the number of bees that come by to visit the plants.  So if you are brave, take a second to get close and observe - but be careful - it can be quite mesmerizing.

I thought I'd forward to you a presentation prepared by teacher Herv Kegalj about the Masithuthu Garden.  (Please click on link below). Although it had been planted by students, the care of the garden for at least the past 6 or 7 weeks is largely a result of your efforts.  It looks beautiful!

At some point during the last week of August, I hope to arrange a photo shoot of everyone who helped us out and/or encouraged our gardening efforts this summer. Details will be forthcoming.

Many thanks for your help!  See you around the garden:)
