Neighbourhood Farm is a nonprofit organization that creates urban farms throughout Cape Town, South Africa in schools and hospitals. They see a vision of outdoor classrooms that teach food security, healthy eating, and safe food handling for the good of the community. The larger population also gains employment opportunities, urban farm training, and socio-economic development. Neighbourhood Farm strives to create a center that will benefit the larger community as well as the local residents looking for affordable access to quality produce.
Neighbourhood Farm hopes to expand their vision of outdoor classrooms to more schools and communities. With their approach, they hope to become a guideline for other communities to recreate their successes and create their own produce centers.
