Faure Community Farm
Military veterans and their families help regenerating their community
Partners: CCMVCD (Cape Corpse Military Veterans Civilian Directorate) & SRG. The project is based in Cape Town, South Africa. Both organizations developed this project together with other local partners. Edhen supports the development of the project, and the preparation of a proposal for fundraising.
Vision of the Community: “We envision a future where our community members have been empowered with the skills and knowledge to create a sustainable living for themselves and their families which includes water, electricity, food and waste processing.”
Mission: “Empowering our Military Veterans and enabling our community to become self-sustainable. Eradicate hunger and poverty and foster a real sense of community. This will counter not only crime and violence against woman and children, but also lower the prevalence of drugs in the community.”
- To create a self-sustainable village where everyone has access to all basic needs and profits can be shared with or sold to other communities.
- Food is grown locally via regenerative agriculture. Water harvesting and treatment managed locally, and electricity generated individually for each dwelling.
- Community waste is processed, recycled and re-used locally.
- We endeavor to involve our community, with focus on the youth, to participate in our projects, empowering them to become self-sustainable.
