The garden includes tomato, kale and spinach crops, adjoined by a piggery and poultry section. The agricultural project was started as a parent empowerment project at Mary Rice Centre, whose cohort of students enjoy the nutrition of most of the produce grown.
As with all ERFA-supported projects, sustainability is embedded in the roots of the project. All profits received from excess crops are planted back into the project. Three teenagers from Mary Rice Centre have been receiving agricultural training from ERCN’s experienced team of farmers.
