Community Foodgarden Development
Urban agriculture is a dynamic phenomenon that comprises a large variety of farming systems, a high degree of flexibility and adaptability, and serves various functions. It contributes to local economic and micro enterprise development, poverty alleviation and food security. It also encourages the productive reuse of urban organic wastes and wastewater, the greening of the city and maintenance of its biodiversity as needs are focussed on renewable resources. It enables the urban person who is poor in resources to participate in local economic development. To make urban agricultural resources available to the needy will require the creation of an enabling policy environment. The Directorate Integrated Environmental Management (DIEM) has successfully established six urban agricultural projects within Mogale City but this is clearly not enough as indicated by the expressed need. The fundamental benefit is to alleviate poverty and promote job creation through community assistance and co-operatives establishment. Start year
