Abalimi Bezekhaya (meaning farmers of the home in isiXhosa), established 1982, is a non-profit micro-farming organisation that aims to provide
basic human necessities for indigent persons, by assisting impoverished groups and communities within the area of Greater Cape Town known as the Cape Flats to establish and maintain their own vegetable gardens, so as to enable those groups and communities to supplement their existing,
inadequate supply of food and create livelihoods.
We 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.
Harvest of Hope was set up as a social business that connects the producer and consumers within the food system more closely. It allows the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of the Abalimi farmers and thus share the risks of farming through the purchase of fresh organic vegetable boxes.
Abalimi assists by providing the following support services:
- Project implementation
- Agricultural and horticultural commodities
- Organisation building
- Facilitation of partnerships
- Research, monitoring and evaluation
Hours: 08:30 - 16:30
