Food & Trees for Africa run several different community and farming initiatives, ranging from community market gardens that provide food and a source of income for local communities, to FEED Africa, which helps to develop farmers by promoting bio-intensive techniques, coupled with training, farmer and supply chain support. They have trained over 1,500 farmers, served 17,500+ communities, and have facilitated the planting of more than 4.6 million trees so far!

What Food & Trees for Africa Does:

Community Market Gardens:

  • The Market Gardens programme is a food security initiative focusing on income-producing community food gardens and small-holder farmers. We utilise bio-intensive farming methods and combine technical skills training, expert support, and social dynamics workshops.

FEED Africa – Farmer Development:

  • The Farmer Eco-Enterprise Development (FEED) Africa focuses on commercial agriculture and the supply chain by promoting bio-intensive techniques which are coupled with training and farmer support.

Community Tree Planting:

  • Community tree planting transforms shared spaces, and we have thousands more applications on file to support. We plant at schools, community centres, as well as in private homes. And we have created strategic greenbelts in major city centres across the country.

Enterprise Orchards:

  • Enterprise Orchards assists farmers and communities in developing high-yielding, productive orchards. The initiative promotes planting multiple species and varieties to fruit can be harvested over most of the year.

School Gardening:

  • School food gardens are essential to ensuring learners have access to healthy, nutritious food. Inadequate nutrition, particularly in school learners, is well known to negatively impact learning ability, and we want to turn this around.

The EduPlant Programme:

  • This leading schools food gardening and greening programme has been running since 1994. It provides educator, learner, and community permaculture workshops, educational materials, and planting resources.

Homestead Gardening:

  • Homestead gardening focuses on establishing and growing food gardens at the homes of invested, passionate individuals in townships or rural communities. We believe that homestead gardening is fundamental to ensuring food security in South Africa.

Food Forests Initiative:

  • Forests are the most productive, self-sustaining, terrestrial ecosystems on Earth and require very little to no maintenance once established. Therefore, the Food Forests Initiative focuses on nutrition through tree planting. It builds on years of experience implementing long-term greening and food security interventions.

Community Nurseries:

  • The Community Nursery programme facilitates the creation of community nurseries and/or develops and supports existing primary, secondary or tertiary revenue streams from these community operations and sustainability initiatives.

African Climate Reality Project:

  • The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP) — a branch of the US-based The Climate Reality Project — was established to support African Climate Reality Leaders in their efforts to combat climate change in Africa, a continent disproportionately affected by this global crisis.

Country of Origin:

  • Based in South Africa
