10,000 Gardens in Africa is an international project of Slow Food which aims to create 10,000 good, clean and fair gardens in African schools and communities, to provide platforms to teach young people about the importance of food biodiversity and give access to fresh and healthy food. The project also creates a network of leaders who are aware of the value of their own land and culture.

Thanks to the Slow Food Gardens, a growing network of people around Africa is working to preserve biodiversity, restore value to traditional knowledge and gastronomy and promote small-scale agriculture. Like many small seeds, the gardens are growing together, bringing about change and laying the foundation for a social economy closely linked to the local area and the environment.

This year, Slow Food Edinburgh is committed to supporting a new Garden in Kimashuku (Tanzania). Through our activities, we’re fundraising to give the children of the Kimashuku Home School Garden in Tanzania the tools to grow their own garden following the SF philosophy.
