With the help of the South African Institute of Entrepreneurship (SAIE) and The Business Place Philippi, and supported by the Ackerman Pick n’ Pay Foundation, had the great idea to create a new social business that should support the sustainability of the community gardens in the Cape Flats area into the future: Harvest of Hope! Harvest of Hope was launched at the beginning of 2008. The aim was to sell vegetables in a very direct, friendly and personal way so that farmers would benefit from a secure and fair income while customers would benefit from reasonably priced and locally produced (low carbon footprint!) organic vegetables. Customers would also have the knowledge that their money is giving people jobs and conserving the environment through local organic farming among the poor. Therefore the best market place is at schools, where parents come to fetch their children after the classes and are anxious for fresh and organic vegetables for their families. www.harvestofhope.co.za
