Permaculture and Food Sovereignity Project Course

This course is been specifically designed to assist subsitence farmers , schools and home based care groups to provide food to their families and clients while crearting income for themselves. The beneficiaries of this programme see this course not only as an income generating project, but strategic and critical to strengthening resilient food systems. For too long, food policy in South Africa has focused on yield at any cost – and undermined the very systems and people on which food production depends. We give thanks to the generous support from the Dutch Government through ICCO and Kerk in Actie to help us challenge the culture around food production and consumption systems in South Africa in which people would rather prefer to buy food from big chain stores instead of engaging in alternative community based models of production and consumption, which prioritize local markets.
