The Growing Hope Movement arose out of the ashes of civil and social unrest in South Africa in July 2021. Realizing food insecurity is a national security risk and that climate action is having an impact on food sustainability. We choose to plant food gardens, and teach permaculture wisdom, and inspire food self-reliance as a courageous peacebuilding initiative!
Mission 2023: We are working with experienced community partners and NPOs to teach sustainable, organic food-growing, and permaculture-inspired principles to children in under-resourced communities.
Mission 2022was an initiative to teach a hands-on educational class, in schools in under-resourced South African schools, while seeding the beginning of a permaculture-inspired food garden at the school, focused on soil regeneration. The goal was 52, we achieved 22.
