Welcome to Harvest of Hope!
Harvest of Hope is the market which connects the farmer to the customer.
Harvest of Hope is a project that operates as an extension of the services offered by Abalimi Bezekhaya. Abalimi is a nonprofit organization meaning "Farmers of the Home" which is based in home and community gardens throughout townships of Cape Town City. Abalimi is focused on the advancement of food security through training residents of townships to grow their own vegetables. Harvest of Hope matches the farmer’s produce with the market demand for healthy, chemical and pesticide free, locally grown vegetables.
Harvest of Hope guarantees the purchase of the vegetables grown by our farmers, allowing them to focus on skill building and ensuring that their vegetables are of the highest quality. Our farmers have support in production planning, soil infrastructure, planning harvests, access to seeds and seedlings, vegetable transportation, and financial services among others.
Harvest of Hope is a relationship of trust between the urban farmers of Cape Town and the members of Harvest of Hope. This trust builds income security for the farmers as well as more availability of healthy food for families across the Western Cape.
