About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"During his imprisonment of 27 years, Nelson Mandela and his colleagues refused to participate in prison work assignments. Instead he spent his time tending a small garden on the prison rooftop, consisting of about two dozen oil drums in which he grew the following vegetables: Beans, Chillies, Beetroot, Lettuce, Broccoli, Onions, Cabbage, Peppers, Cauliflower, Spinach, Brinjal (Eggplant), Tomatoes and Strawberries. The challenge for all of us, to grow a ‘Nelson Mandela garden’ this year. 'Living isn’t just about doing for yourself, but what you do for others as well.' -Nelson Mandela"
