Gardening through the drought

There are very few places in South Africa that have not been touched by the drought. Thankfully, we’ve managed to keep our food gardens alive and producing food for families.

Food gardening is interwoven with our efforts to feed children and families as it helps beneficiaries provide more fresh vegetables for their homes, to save money and generate an income.

The rate of household food gardening is also growing – which is a welcome relief to all given the escalating cost of food.
