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 growing and improving their communities.
Our work is based on five core pillars:
- Training and extension services around urban agriculture
- Provision of affordable and accessible agricultural resources such as seeds, seedlings, compost and natural fertilisers
- Infrastructure support, specifically around maintenance of irrigation and soil building
- Market access support to encourage income generation
- Organisational development support
Our garden centers are based Khayelitsha and Nyanga where we support the local communities, with our head office at Airport Industria in Cape Town.
