About the African Grower initiative

The African Grower is a hydroponic growing system — with a unique African design spin — aiming to empower communities by providing them with the tools to grow their own fruits and veggies. For every African Grower sold, a percentage of the sale will be donated to the HandPicked CityFarm — a rooftop garden initiative at Kenilworth shopping centre in Cape Town where people are trained to grow their own produce which is then sold to restaurants in the centre. The African Grower and HandPicked CityFarm are paving the way for a brighter future, where every household has access to fresh, healthy food!!
