Adopting our Garden in Africa




Help Us Adopt an African Food Garden.

Make a donation to our Slow Food Waitakere African Garden Campaign on Givealittle. 

Slow Food is creating a network of young people working to save Africa's extraordinary biodiversity, to raise the profile of traditional knowledge and food culture and to promote small-scale, family farming.

We plan to to adopt an African school garden that partners with our Auckland school garden project. 
A true local-meets-global connection.

Adopting our African garden costs 900 euro.
So we need to raise $NZ 1,400. 


How the money is used is really cool. It covers the purchase of materials, training for a local team and on-site project coordination, distribution of educational materials and organizing opportunities for exchange among projects. It also includes a contribution towards scholarships for African students to study at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy.

We met some of the inspiring Gardens in Africa team in Turin and we are very keen to support them.
And we will all get to follow the  progress of our garden.

Please jump in and be part of our project!

And share it  with your friends, family and colleagues.
