Conversation with charmaine pretorius about seedlings grown at home distributed through our food kitchens
HERE ARE SOME EXTRACTS
But also i would like to find an expert in vegwtable growing and explain to me how many seeds in ones backgarden no matter how small because there are ways to grow many are needed to grow how many vegetables and what kind of cost ?
And certain vegetables are more nutritious eaten raw ...
And certain veges have vitamin B or some others right
So imagine if we gave some education to the kids about all this
Why they dont teach it in school is beyond me
Charmaine worked with soil 4 life ...can you share some oics with group charmaine ?
Did anyone else ?
Mornings all yes Mike but if i have seedlings &compost i think it's best to show them on a video someone can make the video as i show them step by step
Ok and forward it on whatsapp to friends? good idea
And then more and more
Yes as it grows then how to plant it also on video
But obviously seeds are cheaper
Cause we have a small budget And people can use tins to plant them in cant they ? To start?
It is cheap Mike but the compost is a bit costy
Yes even a broken plastic bath there's many things you can use even tyres
And vegetable peels etc ?
So many things
I mean what veges doe people buy even if very poor ?
Now and the. At least ?
Carrots ? Onions ?
That is yes but that takes time while they busy with seedlings they can put all the peels anything bones also in a hole to make their own compost
How long to make compost that can be used ?

[11:01, 1/17/2021] Cc Masks Web Charmaine Pretorius : Depends on Mike you can even cover it with an old blanket remember they must also take the temperature but that i will show step by step
That will fantastic charmaine if you can teach us all 🙏
👍👍 will do it with pleasure
It's quite a lot you can learn how to catch your seedlings in a brown bag aswell but the first time you will give out money but after that you can benefit from your garden
Like call them VEGETABLE WHATSAPP CLUBS
So ok we need someone do some costing of seedlings vs seeds ( maybe can combine both too )
Like HILLVIEW AT HOME CLUB
the way is see it i like food gardens but 1 its pandemic and better to do at home
2 home food gardens can spread quicker perhaps ?
Than public space big gardens cause more people will do home gardens ?
And they will appreciate it more coz it comes out of their own hands &they will be proud of it
There's people that doesn't have the privilege of a backyard but they can do it on their stoep
Even on side of walls ? In wooden racks ?
Yes even that there's so many ways i know of some of our people who did their garden on their roof in tyres
