Creating communities that are conducive for sustainable family living

By Renae Viljoen: Cape Upliftman Projects

Just like a seed needs a partner, i.e. the ground, water, sun; we need each other— and through constructive partnerships—we can create healthy, sustainable communities. The farm to the table concept is what we aim to achieve with our community project “The Garden”.
We believe a holistic approach is needed in order to assist us to create sustainable communities and at the same time create job opportunities.

Farm to table food is healthier than processed and packaged foods. First of all, it’s all natural and many of the ingredients and products are locally grown or raised. Secondly, it probably contains fewer calories, fat, sugar, and carbohydrates than the pre-packaged food you find at the store.

We believe a holistic approach is needed in order to assist us to create sustainable communities and at the same time create job opportunities. Unemployment is one of our country’s major hurdles and with assistance and partnership with government and the private sector; we can envision our goals through educating unskilled community members to find employment. WE CAN BRING CHANGE TO OUR COMMUNITIES!

PROJECT : The Garden

The Garden will become a hub of positivity, where seeds of restoration, love, and joy. Our first project “The Garden”, an organic farm will be a place for the community to express itself in sowing seeds of hope and freshness of life. The Community peace will be sown.
We would appreciate any assistance from agricultural organisations or the private sector. Help us make the change!
