In Swaziland, in the small town of Bulembu, The Ivory Foundation supports a program initiated by Designing Hope, which aims to develop an experimental garden of various organic growing practices for producing vegetables for 370 orphans.
The team of 7 instructors trained in permaculture practices by Designing Hope in Piggs Peak, have established this garden in this border town with South Africa.
The experiments include the use of biochar produced locally and used into raised beds with organic non-hybrid seeds, where before, a classical vegetable garden was operated with chemical inputs and non-reproducible seeds.
The beds of 40 meters long, have an irrigation system.
This garden makes it possible to meet the vegetable food needs of the Bulembu orphanage.
