Umthunzi Farming Community
We provide ethical market access to a network of small-scale urban organic farmers in the Cape Flats. We partner with them to grow high quality, nourishing, local, seasonal organic vegetables. Our vision is to promote conscious collaboration from seed to consumer to build a more sustainable, ethical, transparent local food system.
