Masithuthu Garden

The word “Masithuthukisane” is a Zulu word which means “building community by developing friendships”. In the Garden, students grow veggies in an organic manner, donating the produce to various local soup kitchens and agencies. Students plant the Garden in the spring; students, parents, and parishioners assist in looking after the garden over the summer months, and students harvest the potatoes in the fall.
