    A green boost for the Nakivale library

    Day 46

    Growing Smiles

    The focus of today’s 365 idea is to beautify the library. Library staff wants to create an exciting space outside of the library to match the inside. A wonderful plan was hatched to make the outdoor space for learning as well!

    The idea was a kitchen garden! Kitchen gardening is something anyone can do and enjoy. It helps make the community greener and supplies delicious and nutritious food. This garden had herbs, vegetables, and fruits – and who doesn’t like a nice fresh piece of fruit?! “We will have lots of green vegetables to balance our diet. This had greatly inspired me to start up a small-scale vegetable gardening at home for self-reliance” says 36-year-old. Ivan Nyarimana Congolese security guard at the library

    The garden is now growing and so is the anticipation of the delicious food to come.
