How does your model address financial, social, and environmental sustainability?
I am confident that this project is sustainable, not only because the model has been tried and tested, but also because ownership is given directly to communities, so they have a vested interest in the project and will want it to succeed. Therefore, this project is socially sustainable. I have spent the past year building relationships within communities in the province, so I know that there will be support for my project on the ground, and that the gardens will help to improve community cohesion. At the moment my main problem is financial sustainability. I am relying on private donations to fund the project, but I hope that soon there will be more gardens making profit, which will generate a small income. I will never charge for my services, but instead I will put all profits into building more gardens. I also want to provide support to individuals wishing to build gardens on their own land. This project is completely environmentally sustainable, as all gardens are organic, and all waste is composted.
