In celebration of the Mandela Day 2015, Sigwela and Associates held an Environmental Awareness day at Jozana’s Hoek Junior Secondary School. The event included the school, the community members and also the participants of the Land Rehabilitation project that Sigwela and Associates is currently implementing in the Jozana area in Sterkspruit. Sigwela and Associates handed over implements such as wheelbarrows, spades, pieks, rakes, watering cans, and seeds to the school so that they can start a vegetable garden. The aim of this was to both celebrate Mandela Day and also incorporate food security as the community was also encouraged to start their own self-sufficient gardens and were also provided with equipment and seeds.
The Event was graced by the presence of the ward 12 councillor, Madoda Bingwa, Officials from the Department of Agriculture, SAPS, ward committee, the school principal, and Dr Ayanda Sigwela of Sigwela and Associates.
These gardens will visited monthly to monitor their progress.
