About Us

The Farm and Garden National Trust was established to raise funds to spread knowledge, expertise and resources to emerging micro-farmers and gardeners nationally.

There exists a tremendous need throughout South Africa for support, assistance and funding for community-based projects in poor and needy communities, particularly self-help projects involving micro-farming (organic and bio-dynamic gardening and small farming).

Trust Founder Rob Small: ‘My colleagues and I at the Farm and Garden National Trust have proven over and over again that starvation is entirely avoidable, even in the worst situations, if people are given just a bit of land, some seed and some water. We have gone on to prove that it is even possible to create one full-time job on as little as 500 square meters (and less) of land.’
