Since 2011 Slow Food has continued to grow a network of about 3,500 active gardens in Africa.
Located in schools, cities and villages, the food gardens allow communities to choose what to grow, eat and sell. They support local economies, help protect the extraordinary biodiversity of the African continent, add value to traditional knowledge and food cultures and nurture a network of young people working to change the future of agriculture and food in Africa.
We are not stopping here. Our objective going forward is to create thousands of new gardens, catalog more products at risk of extinction, establish new Presidia and Earth Markets to help African farmers, herders and fishers, organize education activities in schools, promote local food and get communities actively participating, with a particular investment in youth and women.
Support the Slow Food activities in Africa!
