Found at the sustainable entrepreneurial hub Philippi Village, the growing Harvest of Hope community supplies freshest, seasonal vegetables every week, while simultaneously supporting sustainable, dignified, healthy livelihoods.

Harvest of Hope is a project of Abalimi Bezekhaya, and John Webb (standing in for Kieno Kammies) spoke with Mama Christina Kaba, Operations Director at Abalimi Bezekhaya during our outdoor broadcast.

We come here and pack herbs at the beginning of the week. We pack the orders for the trucks to deliver the vegetables. We enjoy it and the community is happy since we've started the organic farming. We keep our Cape Town green now.
