THE Msunduzi Innovation Development Institute (Midi) will host a food security expo next Thursday at the Edendale Lay Ecumenical Centre.

The aim of the event is to teach people in the community about the principles of gardening and farming.

Midi officia Rutendo Zeneah­ said: “With this event we are trying to teach people how to plant and nurture their gardens.

“We are teaching them how to grow healthy food so they can maintain a healthy life-style.”

Zeneah urged the residents living in and around Edendale to attend this event which is open for all interested, so they can learn more about living a more greener and nutritious lifestyle in their homes.

She also asked various non-profit organisations and agricultural­ departments to be involved in this project to help teach the communities the importance of gardening, farming and agriculture.

This event is one of the ways that Midi is using to promote­ and practice perma-culture, as it will encourage people to learn about different ways in which they can get the best out of nature by working with it instead of against it.
