      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.
