In a collaboration led by Progress NPC we built and established the Makwande Community Garden Project, a plant-based food gardening and wellbeing project with an aim to address the issue of food security in more challenging to reach parts of South Africa during and post the Covid-19 global crisis.

The project is a joint collaboration between The Morris Isaacson Centre for Music (MICM), The Morris Isaacson High School, and Progress; it is an ecological project with an aim to empower children and the Jabavu community through organic food growing, nutrition, music education, re-imagination of South African history through public art and providing access of skills development (landscaping, gardening, nutrition) to the local community by facilitating positive transferable skills through workshops that seek to heal current social traumas, e.g. food insecurity, violence, substance abuse, crime and unemployment.
