Personal message

What we do:  

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.

Targets for 67give: 

R20 = a packet of organic seed for the coming summer planting season, to be distributed amongst Umthunzi farmers

R100 = 5x packets of organic seed for the coming summer planting season to be distributed amongst Umthunzi farmers

R150 = 1 tray of organic seedlings to assist Umthunzi farmers with planting and production

R300 = 12 bags of organic compost, bought from a local Umthunzi farmer who makes it beautifully, to improve soil quality for one small urban farm

R500 = one heavy duty scale to help us at packing day

R1500 = fund petrol and a driver for a month to collect vegetables directly from participating farms, to improve market access for farmers

Total target: R10 000

Umthunzi Farming Community

Umthunzi Farming Community Logo

Umthunzi Farming Community was established in March 2018 in response to poor access to ethical, sustainable markets for small-scale urban farmers and the limited awareness of consumers about our local food systems in Cape Town.
