In January 2016 the first plants were planted in the Van Stadens Reserve School Nutrition Garden, after a delay of almost four months due to heavy rains and waterlogging.
Since then the garden has been harvested regularly. The current crops include Beetroot, Carrots, Spinach, Beans, Zucchini and Tomatoes.
The garden will not only benefit the learners of the Van Stadens Reserve School, but will support the Nomzamo Creche across the road from the Flower Reserve, as well as marginal members in the community such as widows, orphans, elderly and the sick.

The 2016 THORNHILL 100 Road Cycling Race that took place on 17 April, included, for the first time in the history of the race, a youth development component.
The THORNHILL 100 A BIKE FOR HOPE initiative was aimed at rewarding kids from local communities for working hard at school, and to encourage them to live a balanced life.
The Nomzamo Creche was originally established in the mid-1990’s.
Over the years the creche had periods where it had not been operational due to a lack of funding. In 2014/15 Metrowind started supporting the creche as part of the MCDP. At the start of the 2016 school year the creche was reporting an attendance of 68 children from Witteklip, Fitch’s Corner and St Albans.
