'Vegetables harvested from the iThemba Preschool garden in the morning and an hour later, served for lunch! Vegetables lose their nutrients the longer they sit on the shelf (they can lose up to 45% !) and so the fresher the veg, the better the health benefits. Growing minds need good nutrition! That's why we're grateful to be able to work with volunteers at the ECD sites we mentor, helping them start permaculture gardens like this one, giving kids the nutritional foundation they need for their brains and bodies.' from iThemba Projects.
