Today is Mandela Day, where we celebrate the life of the great man and spend 67 minutes giving back to those in need. I spent the day planting a food garden for a educare centre in Masiphumelele. The WWF Interns (myself included) organised the day and together with all the amazing volunteers we managed to plant turnips, beetroot, spinach, cauliflower and carrots. Mint and marigolds were used as natural pest repellents and the volunteers went over and above and fixed the broken fence around the property. We also played some educational games with the kids, teaching them about nutrition and healthy eating.
