#GiftALoveGarden Campaign

Gift A Love Garden

The #GiftALoveGarden Campaign hopes to implement and create sustainability in Cape Town’s poorer communities.

On 18 January 2021, Ladles of Love launched the #GiftALoveGarden campaign with the aim of helping with the implementation of sustainable development in the Western Cape.

This will be achieved through the creation and growth of urban farms in the Cape’s impoverished areas where many do not have daily access to nutritious food.

Every week we venture out to urban farms, meet with sustainability leaders and visit those in need of a community garden to find out how to successfully realise this vision.

Creating Sustainability in
Cape Town

We visit some of the urban farms in an around the Cape to find out how to start with the implementation of sustainable development and what problems need to be addressed. A community garden can help provide their soup kitchens with fresh and essential ingredients to feed hundreds of people every day.

We met with experts such as Justin Bonello (founder of The Neighborhood Farm) and John Thomas (founder of Living Hope) to give us valuable insight on growing the initiative.

We have since visited farms struggling in Gugulethu and thriving urban farms in Cape Town city . We are still currently out on the field every week looking for opportunities and solutions.

How You Can Help Implement Sustainability

We are looking for volunteers at our urban community farms around the Cape. Ladles of Love has partnered with the Ocean View CAN community farm from whom we buy fresh produce to supply our beneficiaries. Let’s help with the implementation of sustainable development in our Cape communities!

Right now they need help with a variety of daily tasks to help them continue feeding their community soup kitchens while producing enough to sell at their local market.

We need volunteers to help:

  • Plant seedlings and propagate seeds
  • Weeding and clearing land
  • Mulching pathways and crop beds

Volunteers must bring their own refreshments, sunscreen and hats/protective gardening clothes. Volunteer slots are 3 hours each and are between Monday to Saturday. Let’s implement sustainability in the Cape together. Volunteers will also learn how to plant and the importance of eating organic.
