The Base Management and HQ
section of Naval Base Simonís Town decided to plant a
vegetable and herb garden that could sustain the Haven
in the longer term. The following seedlings were bought
from money raised by this naval section: carrots,
cabbage, beetroot, beans, lettuce, pumpkin, spinach,
spring onions, parsley, mint, fennel, as well as compost
and fertilizer with which to enrich the soil.
The garden will now be
cared for by the residents of the haven.
