Growing Growers

Growing Growers (GG) is a small-scale veggie farming education initiative associated with Zawadi Farm and Foundations for Farming (FfF). The mission of GG is to multiply small-scale organic vegetable growers in the city and beyond by providing simple, reproducible training that can be immediately implemented and easily passed on to others.
