Local Slow Food communities in Africa have embarked on an ambitious project: to create a thousand gardens in schools, villages and on the outskirts of cities in 26 African countries.
These community gardens will provide fresh, healthy food for people while passing on knowledge from generation to generation, supporting local economies and encouraging agricultural autonomy.
Project coordinators in the region have already involved hundreds of communities across the continent.
And Slow Food's international network has sprung into action to raise the funds necessary to make the gardens happen. To date, Slow Food supporters have already adopted over 550 gardens.
