An overview of the workshop conducted by Garden and Life at Johannesburg Maharishi College. The workshop aimed to empower teachers and students by teaching them innovative techniques for growing vegetables using recycled tires and hydroponic systems.

Garden and Life conducted two interactive workshop sessions at Johannesburg Maharishi College. Each session focused on practical demonstrations and hands-on learning to ensure participants gained a comprehensive understanding of the gardening techniques.


In the first session, participants were introduced to the concept of gardening using recycled tires as planters. The objectives of the session were as follows: 


- Understanding the benefits of tire gardening for urban environments. 

- Practicing proper watering, fertilization, and maintenance. 

- Learning how to prepare and fill the tires with appropriate soil.

- knowledge on seed selection and planting techniques. 


During this session, Garden and Life instructor Mr Justice Takalani demonstrated the step-by-step process of planting vegetables in tires. Participants actively took part by planting their chosen vegetables.
