ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Family Food Garden project aims to address the problem of food inaccessibility and financial insecurity by equipping individuals with the skills to be able to sustainably grow their own food at home.
The project, which will run on a rolling cycle, will see Greenpop and Urban Harvest supporting individuals and groups from across South Africa over 12 months through in-person and digital training and the distribution of Family Garden Pods.
By increasing knowledge about home food gardening, cooking and nutrition, and entrepreneurship, the project aims to empower individuals and communities to become more food secure and financially independent.
In the 2021/22 financial year, Greenpop and Urban Harvest aim to run the Family Food Gardens project with 160 people from the Cape Flats in Cape Town.
