Ellen Savude & Stella Galamo – One Urban Garden

Date grant awarded: November 9, 2019

Founded by Ellen Savude – One Urban Garden is on a mission to radically transform urban food systems, by building and operating farms that utilize unused urban space to grow safe, healthy food in a sustainable and socially responsible way. We hope to change the way food is grown and distributed in cities and, in the process, reconnect people with the story of food from farm to table.

With the rise of urbanization in Africa, One Urban Garden intends to provide affordable fresh produce in cities, educate more Africans about the practice and to provide new job opportunities for young people.
