- A local community has been commended via social media for transforming a garbage dump
- Within three weeks, they've somehow transformed the site into a sustainable garden with the aim of growing fresh produce
- Social media users were full of praise, as the news started trending on Tuesday
A local community killed two birds with one stone, as they somewhat alleviated the lack of service delivery and will hopefully address some of the poverty pressures.
Twitter user Blessings Ramoba (@BlessingsRamoba) shared an inspirational tweet on Monday evening to highlight the noble efforts of the above-mentioned community.
Although some of the guilty parties live in their midst, all residents were forced to endure an eyesore, after a vacant field was turned into a garbage dump.
Within the space of three weeks, they've somehow managed to transform the site into a sustainable garden with the aim of growing fresh produce.
Ramoba's tweet explained that the long-term plan is to enable the community to now utilise the land to provide them with a source of free and fresh food.

"Wow, well done."
Uncleh49 (@Uncleh49Van) said,
"This is great to see. If someone utilises land this way the government should give him more land. Fantastic example this person is to his fellow countrymen."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that Pulane Tlhone has showed off how productive she is during the lockdown.
Tlhone converted her backyard into a stunning garden where she plans on planting veggies.
She said the harvest will help feed her family and members of her community.
