Siyakhana Food Garden

The Siyakhana Food Garden, our flagship project, is regarded as one of the most successful urban food gardens in the wider Johannesburg metropole, as well as a hallmark of intersectoral collaboration. This is largely because of its mission to make far-reaching impacts at local, provincial, and national levels. It is not simply a garden; it also serves as a platform for other activities that address the following five key objectives:

  • Improving availability of a wide variety of good and nutritious food
  • Conducting relevant and appropriate action-research that is influencing policy and strategies
  • Offering training to develop capacity among emerging leaders in the area of food gardens and sustainable livelihoods
  • Engaging in advocacy and networking activities
  • Achieving financial sustainability through a self-funding social entrepreneurship model
