It was an interesting, successful, and rewarding course. The candidates, from Upper Highway and Durban areas, included volunteers from the community initiative “Buyasizwe”, who assist Oakleigh Ridge Urban Improvement Project with gardening projects and caring for their local park near Durban Berea. Much was achieved during the course and it was great exchanging ideas
