We as Nsanjama School have the following plans for the near future:
- Prepare our garden again for vegetable production such as mustered, tomatoes and okra.
- Put extra effort on caring for our trees that survived from water lodged due to Cyclone cyclone Freddy
- Look after our live fence. This live fence is doing very well.
- Construct a temporary fence around the live fence forus to perform our activities well as well as protecting the live fence.
More than learning success through gardening!
