2. Buy a vegetable box and support our farmers

While the Abalimi farmers grow vegetables, Harvest of Hope provides a market outlet.  This allows the farmers them to focus on building their skills and ensuring that their vegetables are of the highest quality.  Abalimi provides support to the farmers in production planning, soil infrastructure, planning harvests, access to seeds and seedlings, vegetable transportation, and financial services to be able to run their micro farms.
