My name is Andrew Zwane founder of Seed Harvest Organisation; we use an approach called social and therapeutic Horticulture which is a process of using gardening, plants and horticulture to help individuals develop.
Our activities are varied but focus on championing the benefits Therapeutic Horticulture to individuals, communities and organisations, as well as teaching techniques and practical applications so that anyone in any community can take part and enjoy gardening. Gardening can help communities accomplish many things and can provide a purposeful activity for people coping with difficult periods in our life or people who want to do it as hobby or a profession.READ MORE >>>

I truly hope garden will provide a great opportunity for people to go out explore and discover.READ MORE >>>
