This is an online farm stall for the Ndlambe region. We want to bring together local small scale fruit and vegetable growers and provide an online sales and delivery platform that is fair and equitable to all partners. We want to use the convenience of modern technology and sustainable practices to bring good local produce to local consumers, efficiently and safely.
There is also an educational element to the operation. Growers and customers can also learn about: planting systems - water conservation - soil nutrition and permaculture. Basic market economics and notions of supply and demand can also be taught along with the nurturing of a spirit of socially responsible entrepreneurship. Further to this, at a time of crisis, the project could help foster ties between communities and individuals as well as allowing for delivery workers to check in on the well-being of vulnerable people.
