The mission of the Gardens Team was to collaborate with the residents of Monwabisi Park to research and implement sustainable agricultural systems that could provide nutritional and aesthetic benefits. The team planted gardens and created educational materials to develop the community's agricultural capabilities. We proposed composting procedures that will be utilized in the Indlovu Water and Sanitation Facility. Through our achievements, we hope to provide a sustainable gardening plan and a base for future teams to build upon.
