Post related to The water we eat,

As Bambanani Primary school we were visited by Julia from Water Explorers. We learned how to grow Spekboom from a cutting. This is called propagation. We also learnt how to identify plants from each other by checking the stem, branches, and leaves. Alien plants is a our gardens as are very water thirsty. We then went onto find out about secret water in the food we eat every day. We learned that legumes or pulses use 50 litres of water per kg whilst beef is a crazy R13000 liters of water or two jojo tanks. We later exchange water-wise recipes and finished the day with a delicious chickpea cinnamon snack.
