Harvest of Hope (HoH)
Harvest of Hope is a project started by Abalimi in 2008 to provide a new market for township farmers’ excess produce. By collecting from many gardens we make up extraordinary vegetable boxes. We then take them to school communities where parents collect them for their homes. Harvest of Hope thus gives fresh and healthy veggies to people and lets money flow into poor farmer’s pockets. www.harvestofhope.co.za
