INMED’s first Health in Action Eco-School

Kudos to Lukholweni Primary School in Soweto for becoming INMED’s first Health in Action Eco-School. We’re so proud of the school’s commitment to increasing its students’ access to fresh food by planting gardens and implementing environmentally friendly practices. Last week, volunteers from INMED South Africa, Mondelēz International and Wild Serve helped students plant apple, pear and citrus trees on the campus, which they named the Nelson Mandela Orchard. Yesterday, 30 elephant food trees were delivered to the school—to be planted on Arbor Day. Elephant food trees are drought resistant, will grow in arid soil (even rock), impervious to fire and attract honeybees with their beautiful purple flowers. The leaves also are a great source of protein. Stay tuned for more news of our Arbor Day festivities at Lukholweni!
