Watch our garden grow in Pella!

The Pella Food Garden Cooperative, an all-female farming enterprise in the desert region of Northern Cape, South Africa, is getting closer to its goal of building an adaptive agriculture business. Activities last week focused on refining the drip irrigation system, installing the second shade cloth to protect the crops from the harsh sun and starting construction of the seedling greenhouse for the commercial-sized aquaponic system. With the technical support of INMED Partnerships for Children and INMED South Africa and funding from Old Mutual SA, this project will allow the co-op to produce high-quality vegetables and fish year-round and reach broader markets for higher income generation.
