Lions Club of Merriman
Founded in 1965 we are a member club of the nternational Association of Lions Clubs now 101 years old with nearly 1.5 million members in 210 countries. Our mission is to provide humamnitarian community service to those in need. Hunger Relief is a core project and with dwindling contributions of unsold produce and bakery goods from some retail outlets we cannot meet the needs of those we feed every week. To improve the quality, quantity and nutritional value of the vegetables alone we have started our own organic vegetable garden - GREENLEAVES in association with Langa Mountain Enterprises at the Elim Night Shelter in Elsies River Industrial.
It is an expensive project to create and the costs are being met solely by our club apart from donated equipment. GREENLEAVES will help us feed over 1000 people a week including hungry school children. The project provides employment and given the funds will be able to expand. Once established we will hold veg growing workshops for the public & school environment groups so that everyone can learn different ways to grow nutritious produce.
Sorry, no projects have been created yet.
