Gardening Course Graduation at St Michael’s

It was a day of great jubilee at St Michael’s Primary school in Harare on Tuesday 31 October 2023 when 57 Grade 5 learners from the school and seven adults from St Michael’s Anglican church in Harare had their graduation for having completed a ten week long home vegetable gardening course, which was facilitated by Ms Mazibuko. During the day weeklong program, the learners who were organised by Ms Thobeka Babi and adults learned how to do a seedling boxes, start a vegetable nursery, add sheet mulch, prepare a tea fertilizer, planting, intercrop and how to plant trees. 

During the graduation learners from different grades of the school joined in to celebrate the achievement of their peers with traditional songs, dance and a praise poem. Revd Deon McDillon who is the Diocesan Environmental Coordinator for the Diocese of False Bay gave a word of thanks to the school for having allowed its learners to gain this needed skill. He also thanked the learners and all participants for their commitment and mostly to the educators and facilitator.
