Born and brought up in Luderitz, Namibia, Menesia is very passionate about climate change and community development. She comes from a country that has all the natural resources to address climate change, food security, and poverty. The wind and sun in the Kharas region, where she resided, can provide energy to the whole of Namibia. Menesia wishes she could do something to save Mother Earth from the poor decisions taken which are not beneficial for the poor and needy in society. What she wants is to stand together and hold our leaders accountable for their decisions - otherwise we will never be able to reverse the effects of greenhouse gasses and burning fossil fuels.
She came to Glasgow with the eagerness to make positive changes and building this mobile garden from pallets and reusable materials shows anything is possible if you want a positive, sustainable change in your community. Menesia is a staff nurse and midwife by profession but is now studying Community Development at the University of Glasgow.
