About us

Abalimi Bezekhaya promotes small scale urban farming.  We are a development organization rather than charity, because we partner with active members of the community to aid their efforts in greening, growing and bettering their communities.

We provide training, supplies and support to enable the urban poor to obtain employment or become self-employed as gardeners, gardening assistants and urban micro-farmers.

We furthermore engage in the conservation, rehabilitation and protection of the natural environment within the Cape Flats.

Our garden centers are based in local communities and our Harvest of Hope program helps maintain stable income security for these urban farmers.
