Gender-responsive agroecology that benefits women small-scale producers, supports food security and protects biodiversity and ecosystems is fundamental to the provision of vegetables and cruelty free food at the schools the EMS Foundation supports.

Mrs Rebecca Mosima lovingly tends the EMS Foundation sponsored growzone at the EA Davidson Primary School in the Vaalwater district, in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. 

Rebecca’s talented green fingers and natural ability to grow vegetables always results in generous crops.  Rebecca is a rockstar when it comes to growing cucumber, spinach, potatoes, and chillies. Her enthusiasm on harvesting days speaks volumes about her commitment and the satisfaction she derives from seeing the fruits of her labour. 

The EMS Foundation Growzones are having a transformational impact on the food security, nutrition and overall well-being of the community and the learners.
