Individuals and groups from disadvantaged communities in Cape Town Metropolitan Area recognise the link between their survival, health and the active improvement of their environment. They have the confidence to initiate, replicate and sustain food growing and greening activities locally, regionally and nationally. They also recognise these actions as an entry point to other development activities that can improve their lives. By forming grassroots associations and networks they will actively seek out and lobby for resources and support, which will strengthen their self-help initiatives in both their rural and urban homes.
