We were given the task to do a community project. The vision behind the plant in a tyre initiative or project was to equip the community with the skill of planting in a tyre whilst promoting a healthy nutritious diet. The main target was day care centers around Zamdela as well as community members who share the same sentiment. Planting in a tyre decreases the backache syndrome whereby you no longer bend over a lot to take care of your herbs and vegetables, as tyres can be stacked up in levels. Tyres store heat and paper decomposes whilst also assisting in the process of ensuring that water remains longer in the soil as opposed to watering the plants daily.
We had to go out to seek donors in order to have the necessary supplies to ensure that the project is executed as well as ensure that the community is engaged in the project. Lesedi Educare Center in Zamdela was chosen for the project. As a group we have decided to continue with this project at other ECD centers.
