I thought I'd take this opportunity to introduce an awesome organisation working in my home city - Cape Town, South Africa. It's called Abalimi Bezekhaya
and they operate as a NGO. they describe themselves as an urban agriculture environmental action group who aim to:
individuals, groups and community based organisations to initiate and maintain permanent organic food growing and nature conservation projects as the basis for sustainable lifestyles, self-help job creation, poverty alleviation and environmental renewal."
I think this goal is amazing and there work is pertinent, all of us need to find a way to get involved in activities like this - ME INCLUDED!!!
Check out this before and after picture to see the impact of one project they were invloved in:BEFORE
