"You are an amazing example and what a beautiful piece of property for this project. Please post your progress regularly."

"You honestly deserve land to expand."

"A beautiful mind and attitude. Boss lady, I salute you dear."

Sonja Prinsloo Jacobs added:

"Wow, now that is forward thinking. Why must people always ask for help if they can help themselves. Government must also hand out garden tools, packets of vegetable seeds and stream a lesson for learners on how to start a veggie garden. Learners will learn a lot and be constructively busy."
