Community Outreach

Abalimi has community garden centres in both Khayelitsha and Nyanga that provide affordable and accessible resources such as seedlings, manure, tools, ferterlizers and pest control, and act as demonstration gardens used for training purposes.

These centres are based in the community and run by fieldworkers from the community, thus making them accessible and affordable to our target ‘grassroots’ communities.  Fieldworkers provide ongoing support to the numerous home gardens and community gardens based at schools, clinics and on municipal land.

Our field workers go around to home and community gardens to provide practical training support on the ground (extension services) for growing organic veggies in sandy soils in the Cape Flats.
