ST Joseph’s Tenaru School are expected to harvest their one hectare rice farm in three months’ time.
The school is growing its own rice to supplement the student’s daily diet.
The April flooding in Honiara and Guadalcanal took its toll on the school’s agriculture projects, causing widespread damages to its rice and vegetable farms.
The school’s head of agriculture Collin Kokwasu said:
“Our farm was badly damaged. We lost almost everything. We’ve since replanted and for our rice, we should be harvesting them in three months’ time,” Mr Kokwasu said.
The school was one of three institutions visited by staff of Kastom Garden Association on Tuesday.
