Abalimi

Abalimi means: “the Planters” in Xhosa, the predominant language among our target community. We assist individuals, groups and community based organizations to initiate and maintain permanent organic food growing and nature conservation projects as the basis for sustainable lifestyles, self-help job creation, poverty alleviation and environmental renewal.
