Organic farming in the Cape Flats

woman with plant, from Sunday TimesI noticed an article in the Saturday Argus yesterday which showed how a community initiative to get women (particularly women, I’ll explain why later) to make money and improve their health through organic farming.

It’s like the peace gardens projects of the 90’s. I loved the fact that these women actually improve their health and well-being while making money for themselves and their families.

Haha, men are generally shooed away from the projects because they’re greedy and sell all the produce without keeping any extra for themselves and their family. All about the money – when will they learn!!
