SFHC Ecological Garden is taking shape
SFHC members spent the day planting legumes, fruit trees and other crops in the new SFHC Centre garden today. They are building a living fence to keep out livestock and are building contour ridges to reduce soil erosion. They have received support from Seeds Knowledge Initiative, a like-minded organization based in South Africa that is helping SFHC build alliances across the region focused on food sovereignty, agroecology and equity.
