About Us
Umthunzi farming community was established in March 2018. ‘Umthunzi’ means ‘shade’ in IsiXhosa, symbolising the support Umthunzi aims to provide to the soil, the plants, the farmers and our Cape Town community. Our mission is to support urban farmers to grow, sell and eat high quality, nourishing, seasonal, organic vegetables, improve consumer education and awareness of our local food system, and consciously link together all role players along the supply chain, from seed to consumer. Our vision is to create a more sustainable, ethical and transparent local food system, thereby increasing the sustainable livelihood of farmers and access to nourishing food for all. We currently work with a network of approximately 30 small-scale farmers based all over the Cape Flats in Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Nyanga and Mitchell’s Plain. Our farmers have gardens that range from close to 1 hectare of land to small patches next to their homes.
