Sixty-three-year-old grandmother and farmer Ms. Christina Kaba, with the support of local women, has established 28 community gardens in Khayelitsha, one of Cape Town’s largest townships. Organically-grown vegetables from these and other neighborhood gardens are combined to create individual boxes for the Harvest of Hope Program.
Since 2008, the market in Cape Town for the produce has grown from 80 to 600 orders weekly. This in turn has led to an increase in job opportunities.
A big green salute, Ms. Christina Kaba and Harvest of Hope, for your Earth-loving efforts. May your organic offerings provide nourishing sustenance to many beautiful children of God. http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/africa/03/29/community.farming.cape.town/index.html http://www.nedbank.co.za/website/content/greenaffinities/GreenlifeProject_detail.asp?affin=project&news=yes&ItemID=197&Article=Articles&Article2=archivehttp://africasummit.org/2011/04/06/africa-in-the-news-community-gardens-grow-hope-in-south-africa/
