Kronendal Block Gardening Group ran a farm stall at the block’s first market at La Provence Park, in Westridge, on Saturday October 31.

They sold fresh produce, which they had only planted in the past three months after digging their first garden trenches at Dagbreek community hall in July, as well as home-made pickles and sauces, home-baked goods, raw honey, soil and seedlings.

The group is encouraging gardeners who live close together to start co-operatives that can feed communities. For more information, call Shireen Pijoos on 082 624 4032.
