The Breede Centre is a skill training centre in McGregor in the Western Cape where the young children of the village up to 15 years old are accommodated in the Educational Programs and the out-of-school people are trained in various skills in the Skills Development Department.

Planting fruit trees is important for a variety of reasons, and it offers numerous benefits to individuals, communities, and the environment.
We also planted fruit trees at the local police station in McGregor.

Fruit trees help to improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen during photosynthesis. They also play a role in reducing soil erosion and maintaining soil health.

Fruit trees provide a sustainable source of fresh, nutritious food. They can yield a variety of fruits like apples, oranges, peaches, and more, which are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Planting fruit trees is important because it contributes to food security, environmental health, biodiversity, and community well-being. It's a sustainable and valuable practice that offers a wide range of benefits to individuals and society as a whole.

You too can contribute to food security, environmental health, biodiversity and community well-being by donating a fruit tree!
