Community Vegetable Gardens

Over the years we have been involved in starting and supporting hundreds of vegetable gardens in the communities we serve - for families, schools and grannie support groups. The gardens allow people to access healthy, fresh food regularly, and to generate an income by selling the excess vegetables if they choose to. Historically we employed horticulture trainers who worked in the communities setting up these gardens and training beneficiaries on how to care for them. We don't currently provide this service due to funding shortages, however we do continue to produce seeds and seedlings in our plant nursery which are then sold or given to community members for their gardens. We also continue to provide a mentoring service for the granny group gardens - many of which are thriving and producing a regular food source.
