Elundini Backpackers

All about our lives running a backpackers, volunteer program, language school and NPO in a South African rural village in the homelands of the Xhosa people.

<p>2 weeks ago 2 #volunteers started preparing the #permaculture garden for the #kindergarten: swails are dug and a few donated indigenous trees are planted already, serving as a wind break in the future. Kindergarten children help to water them. Next step: establishing a worm farm and preparing beds. Training will be given to #community members to maintain the #garden.<br/>
