1000 Gardens in Africa
A Thousand Good, Clean and Fair Gardens:
The thousand gardens are concrete models of sustainable agriculture, sensitive to different contexts (environmental, socioeconomic and cultural) and easily replicable.
The project involves the creation of school, community and gardens. A good garden guarantees fresh and genuine products, promotes local products , safeguards traditional recipes, produces quality food products.
A clean garden respects the environment, uses soil and water sustainably, protects biodiversity.
A fair garden is a community experience, bringing together different generations and social groups; promotes the knowledge and skills of farmers, improving their autonomy and self- esteem; and encourages food sovereignty, giving the community the possibility to choose what to grow and eat.
Through the support and donations of our SF members and event attendees, Slow Food SF funds 2 of these gardens.
