Oupa tends a food garden

Oupa tends a food garden
In South Africa, 'Oupa' is translated as 'Grandpa', but our Oupa is anything but! Oupa has worked for the Topsy Foundation since 2004 and he juggles a number of important roles, one of which is to teach people how to set up and maintain a successful food garden. Oupa is proud of his work in our communities, and we are very proud of Oupa. (view small | med | large | orig)

Food gardens

Food gardens
Vegetable gardens the size of a door can feed a family of four with veg for a period of a year! The Topsy Foundation has assisted families to set up hundreds of food gardens as part of the Vegetable Garden Project and the Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC) Project. Beneficiaries of the OVC project have to have a food garden if they are to be part of the programme. (view small | med | large | orig)
