Introducing Ebenezer Agricultural Training Centre

Ebenezer runs a two year fulltime apprenticeship that enables young people (17-23 year olds) to start and run their own small-scale farm/agribusiness. The Centre has been running since 2007 and is located in Mablauwuni Village in the dry Matopo area of Matebeleland South. The program has an ‘earn and learn’ approach and trainees do not pay anything until they start earning from sales of their produce.

Introducing Mountain of Hope organic farmers Association

Mountain of Hope is an organic farmers association in Wedza, Zimbabwe, with a community garden project, founded in 2011. The project is jointly facilitated by the Fambidzanai Permaculture Training Centre (FPTC) and the Zimbabwe Organic Producers Association (ZOPPA) based in Harare. When I visited the site in May 2012, farmers Catherine Manhando and Rachel Taruvinga told me that the project has been successfully contributing to their household food security, firstly by providing a rich variety of vegetables for the family pot, but also through income received via sales of organic produce. The project and project members sell to neighbouring households, nearby boarding schools and to supermarkets in Harare.
