THE Jica School farming project held an organic gardening workshop on 9 September at Siphofu’s Esibanini hall.

The event saw 130 attendants from 40 schools and representatives from other organisations taking part and displaying their harvest.

Kaoru Sibongile Hirabayashi of the Together­ with Africa and Asia Association, who are promoting organic farming, said it is important to teach organic farming to pupils.

“The purpose of the event is to allow pupils to get skills on how to do this type of farming because it is good for the environment,” said Hirabayashi. She said that organically farmed produce tastes better and is healthier because no chemicals are used in the cultivation of them.
