Supporting rural communities strengthen their local food systems using Permaculture & an ABCD (Asset Based Community Driven) approach.

Current Projects

Swellendam Food Security Initiative

The Swellendam Food Security Initiative was started by ESC in 2022 using an Asset Based Community Development approach by supporting the existing food gardeners to flourish & inspire their neighbors & friends to also start growing some of their own food.

In 2023 we distributed FREE VEGETABLE SEED PACKS to 336 backyard food gardeners in Railton, Suurbrak & Barrydale. In 2024 we want to expand to reach 1000 food gardeners.

If you are a gardener in Railton, Barrydale or Suurbrak, register for your FREE VEGETABLE SEED PACK by clicking this link

Join us as we make Swellendam South Africa's first Food Security Rural municipality.

In response to the overwhelming requests from communities across the Western Cape for seeds for their gardeners we are exploring a creative ways of responding drawing on existing "assets".


If you are keen to support food gardeners in your area by connecting 50 or more of them to this opportunity reach out to Steph now. 

Please note this is not a job opportunity. 

We are looking for community members and gardeners who will identify 50 or more gardeners, collect their details and a photo of their garden. We will send you the seed packs to distribute to your gardeners.

Community Workers participating in this project will be invited to apply for our COMMUNITY WORKER INCUBATOR that transfers Basic Project Management skills to community members helping them to implement their own projects.
