GROW ‘n Live is a non-profit organisation established by five young students at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

The organisation engages with the youth by enhancing their knowledge about the importance of agriculture.

“We do this through promoting environmentally sustainable farming methods, using recyclables goods and exposing school children to the various career paths available in agriculture,” said Lungelo Cele.

At the Happy Earth Festival Grow ‘n Live members Lungelo Cele and Lindani Mchunu will be hosting the “Amazing race” alongside the Duct “Enviro champs”, which was previously facilitated by Morag Peden, one of the Happy Earth Forum organisers, now facilitated by Lerato Phali from Grow ‘n Live.

Other organisation members, Zafezeka Zikhali and Nomzamo Madida, volunteered to be part of the catering committee, headed by Dr Friderieka Voigt, co-ordinator of the Happy Earth Festival and Forum.

“One of the pressing issues South Africa faces is finding ways to eradicate poverty. We feel that through agriculture people can improve their economic standing and live healthy lifestyles.” said Nomzamo Madida
