Urban Agriculture

Since 1994 (South Africa’s first free elections) Abalimi has capacitated community groups and organizations to initiate hundreds of urban agriculture (UA) environmental action (EA) model projects. Our average success rate has improved, from under 50%, to 90%. Before 1994 it was impossible to work developmentally among our target group, who were engaged in a vicious political struggle. Before 1994, all we could do was support thousands of households each year to plant temporary vegetable gardens.

urban-agriculture1Abalimi supports individuals and community groups to develop their own organic vegetable gardens in order to supplement their diet, improve household food and nutritional security and provide sustainable additional income. It is our experience that organic group gardening facilitates community building, personal growth and development of self-esteem.

The scale of this gardening varies.
A small well-organised home food garden can provide food for the whole family and may even provide additional income.

Together with a growing number of other gardening groups, excess produce is also sold to organic retail outlets in the City.
