Watch our maize bags grow

We’re seeing more beneficiaries turning their hands to our food gardens, and that’s got a lot to do with the escalating cost of food and living.

We encourage our beneficiaries to use portable containers like maize bags to grow veggies for their tables. Containers can be fitted into the smallest of spaces and it’s easier to control soil quality. They’re also easy to move – so beneficiaries can take their gardens with them if they move home.
