The garden of urban delights

The garden of urban delights

Primary School Urban Gardens project showcases ingenuity and sustainability at East Coast Radio House & Garden Show.

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade,” once said Rudyard Kipling. So Mr Kipling would likely have appreciated the Urban Gardens project by Verigreen, in partnership with the ECR House & Garden Show and MSQ Interiors, which demonstrates what wonders hard work and ingenuity can produce.

Verigreen has been at the forefront of sustainable manufacturing in KZN for 15 years, and their Urban Gardens initiative aims to raise awareness about environmental issues among those who will inherit the earth: our children. Four Durban schools – Maris Stella, St Mary’s, Durban Preparatory School, and Chelsea Preparatory School – have joined the project, conceptualised by Michelle Markram from MSQ Interiors, which invites students to build urban gardens using waste products.

The most innovative gardens can be seen at the ECR House & Garden Show, and visitors are invited to vote for their favourite. The one with the most votes wins a R5 000 cash prize for their school! Voting takes place via the Supa Mama Facebook page @SupaMamaTM, starting 30 June and ending 5pm 9 July. After the show, the gardens will be donated by the Supa Mama team to deserving families within their local communities.

Now that’s something to sing about!

A wise man once quipped: Creativity is contagious. Pass it on. Albert Einstein certainly knew what he was speaking about, and when it comes to encouraging creativity and imagination in our youth, just think of the untold treasure, waiting to be discovered!


Glad to go camping

The kids are on their mid-year hols and a camping weekend’s on the cards. Woo hoo.


How are you enjoying your Cadbury Breakaway?

Chocolate wrapped and filled wafer. On a chilly winter night, there’s really not much more we want than this, a mug of coffee and a good book.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
