The Bank of Austria came to start the project and the local team took over. An existing raised platform was adapted for eco san toilets and circulation stones design by Markus Dobmeier for Ithuba Wild Coast are used for light and air.

Starting in 2010 with just two beds the vegetable garden is supporting the school kitchen at Mzamba.
The learners take care and water the plants, parents help out to keep it in shape and every year we could extend space for more onions, tomatoes, peppers and herbs.
Compost, shade, worm-farm and vertical recycled plastic-bottles were added over time.
Big thank you to the teachers and staff, the Bank of Austria, parents and community members joining in and actively supporting the garden project!
While supporting the new project – a children’s theatre by design.develope.build (check out their work on http://www.designdevelopbuild.com/)
– with knowledge and a hands-on workshop on straw-lightclay a small structure could be implemented for the local inhabitants.
Prefabricated wall-panels of lightclay were assembled and tested with the great support of motivated neighbors in Langa, Capetown and will serve as a soupKiosk.
Thank you to all participants – making it happen in just a few days!
