SAPS Mountain Rise Youth Desk Forum has embarked on an internal station project by adopting the front garden area of the station as well as the inside area of the community service centre. The aim is to spruce up the station’s entrance area to make it more user and community friendly by enhancing the image of the station.

The Stations Youth Crime Prevention Forum deputy chairman, Avinash Devchund and Stations Youth Crime Prevention Desk co-ordinator, Warrant Officer Joshua Maistry, have engaged with the business sector to partner with the stations garden project. A call also went out to the community asking for assistance and the station secured the helping hands of the local community.

Bobby Padayachee and Joyce Padayachee from Copesville have volunteered together with a group of people from Copesville to work in the garden to make the project a success. Sunshine Seedlings have also come on board supplying outdoor flower plants for the entrance area of the station.

During the next phase of the project the company will be supplying vegetable seedlings in order to set up a vegetable garden at the back of the station.

The grown vegetable will be given to under privileged schools that have feedings schemes operating and also given to children’s homes, old age centres and frail care centres in our community. Farm Yard Organics has also come on board and contributed the compost and potting soil for the station garden project.

“A big thank you to the business sector that has come on board and rendered assistance thus far. Your contribution made towards this stations project is highly appreciated. We look forward to working together in order to sustain projects of this nature,” said Devchund.
