The goal of this project is to develop a sustainable rooftop gardening program that grows organic produce to be strategically marketed to benefit local consumers and low income gardeners. Providing training and support for these low income workers will develop their skill set and further their marketability as an entrepreneur.


In the execution of this project, it is anticipated that we will work closely with the co-researchers and provide them with the necessary tools and support for a sustainable opportunity for entrepreneurship before we leave Cape Town.

Method Overview
