The Slow Food Gardens in Africa network is growing: a network of people working across the continent to preserve biodiversity, add value to traditional knowledge and gastronomy and promote small-scale agriculture.

Establishing thousands of good, clean and fair food gardens in African schools and communities means raising awareness among younger generations about the importance of food biodiversity and access to healthy, fresh food, and training a network of leaders who are aware of the value of their land and their culture and who can be protagonists of change in their countries and in the continent.

Starting an agroecological garden is a powerful political act. 

It supports the small-scale farmers who represent the majority of the food producers across Africa, strengthens local economies and cultures and protects the environment and agrobiodiversity.
