Working with the CFW Rhino Sanctuary, Baby Rhino Rescue provided funds to help in the development of the Sunrise Vegetable Garden. CFW staff tilled the fields, planted the seeds, and brought water in for irrigation. The gardens are maintained and harvested by members of the community. The community has been growing, consuming and selling green beans, carrots, tomatoes, butternut, spinach and corn. The garden project has improved food security and stimulates the local economy through job creation and skills development.
With the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary, we have fully funded the soccer kits of “Team Rhino” and they have won their first game. We anticipate that as the “Rhino Teams” grow, a “Rhino Cup” is in the cards! These teams will be playing for the rhino.
This garden is a prolific provider of beautiful vegetables, including cabbage, peppers, mielies, chillies, butternut, which are shared between the guards, the volunteers, and some VIP guests also. The long term idea is to grow enough vegetables so that they can also be sold at the Nelspruit market to raise extra funds for the sanctuary
