Timeline PhotosSince being launched in 2010, the ‘10,000 Thousand Gardens in Africa’ project has spurred the creation of over 3,000 gardens throughout Africa. These gardens are created by local communities to suit the environment, often in small spaces. They produce indigenous crops, cultivate biodiversity, produce seeds and are managed using sustainable farming methods. The gardens and their stewards teach adults and children alike about native plant varieties, promote a healthy and varied diet, give value to farming as a craft and career and provide a fun and engaging outdoor classroom for schools.

Creating 10,000 good, clean and fair gardens in African schools and communities means not only raising awareness among young generations about the importance of food biodiversity and access to healthy, fresh food, but also training a network of leaders aware of the value of their land and their culture who can serve as protagonists for change and the continent’s future.

When you donate to Slow Food USA between Dec. 1 - 10, we'll pass your contribution on to Slow Food International to fund projects like 10,000 gardens in Africa. Link below to explore the map of Slow Food gardens in Africa!

We are so much grateful for this honor from the president him self. The struggle still continues until we have a world with a balanced food system where good, clean and fair food is accessible to everyone.

In just over seventy years we have lost 75% of our biodiversity, with a loss of 95% in the United States. It is why today 60% of the world food is based on 3 grain crops: wheat, rice and corn. These, however are not the thousands of varieties of rice selected by Indian and Chinese farmers, or the thousands of indigenous Mexican corn varieties, but rather the few hybrid varieties selected and sold to farmers by a handful of multinationals. The industrial food system impoverishes us and our planet. With the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity, Slow Food activates projects all over the world that strengthen producers who cultivate biodiversity, in an effort to protect us and our planet.
