Greetings Dear Food Gardeners,

A lot has been happening in Food Gardens Foundation. 



Our CEO, Ms Hilda Pheto, in July won the Regional Business Achievers Award 1st prize in the Social Entrepreneur category, hosted by the Business Women Association (BWA) at The Pyramid in Johannesburg, for the excellent work she does as CEO of Food Gardens Foundation.

In August, Food Gardens Foundation was nominated for the Productivity South Africa Awards and a finalist. The event was hosted by the Gauteng Productivity Awards at the Emperors Palace in Kempton Park.Although we did not get the first prize, the recognition was worth it. 

It has been a great year for Food Gardens Foundation.

A 1st of its kind for Food Gardens Foundation

Food Gardens Foundation is greening the Johannesburg Inner City in partnership with the Johannesburg Housing Company also known as JHC under their CSI Department called Makhulong-A-Matala. In 2009 Makhulong-A-Matala approched Food Gardens Foundation to form a partnership in greening their inner city accommodation by growing Food at the vacant spaces available at their roof tops which would then assist in keeping their environment clean by recycling garbage and saving water.  Their desire was to have Food Security reach those who are living in their flats and also to keep the tenants, especially women, busy whilst their husbands are at work.  The start of the relationship saw us implementing Food Gardens as part of the School's Holiday programme in Hlanganani Flats situated in Cosmo City and Ekhaya Flats situated in Hillbrow.
