10,000 Gardens in Africa

Sow seeds for the future…

In 2014 we reached our goal of creating more than 1,000 sustainable food gardens in Africa. Located in schools, cities and villages, the gardens are enabling communities to choose what they grow, eat and sell; supporting local economies; saving Africa’s extraordinary biodiversity; raising the profile of traditional knowledge and food cultures; and creating a continent-wide network of young people who want to change the future of agriculture in Africa. But we’re not stopping there: Our new target is 10,000 gardens

The costs of creating a garden is approximately 900 euro:

  • Construction and strengthening of the Slow Food African network € 200
  • Creation of a garden € 250
  • Travel € 100
  • Study € 100
  • Printing and distribution of educational and communication material € 50
  • General coordination of the project € 200
