During our recent visit to Rise Against Hunger (RAH)-sponsored farms, our journey led us to the Vaal University of Technology in Sebokeng, a place where RAH and HyHarvest have joined hands to operate a groundbreaking climate-smart hydroponic greenhouse. This initiative not only promotes sustainability but also conserves water, making it a beacon of innovation.

As we collaborate and strive for sustainability, we are delighted to connect with organizations like Hyharvest and Neighbour Roots, pioneers in the realm of innovative hydroponic gardening. Their work extends to the establishment of the very first rooftop farm at Morningside Shopping Centre, which is a testament to their forward-thinking approach.

At Soul Food, we cherish the opportunity to collaborate and learn from such trailblazing efforts, especially in the realm of food sustainability, which lies at the core of our mission. For an in-depth exploration of the remarkable work being done, you can discover the inspiring journey of Zandile Kumalo at this link.

As part of this incredible initiative, Zandile and Kayelo are actively training two dedicated trainees on-site, sharing their invaluable knowledge and expertise. We stand on the point of a promising journey, eager to embrace learning and make a positive impact on our nation, one meal at a time.
