This hub is situated in Senqu Municipality, about 100 km from Aliwal North, one of the most arid areas of the Eastern Cape. The hub is run by a group constituted by about 80% youth, who received agroecology training in 2021. About 0.8 ha has been acquired for vegetable and herb production, with one practitioner and one intern leading the work. The hub has already established eight food gardens and works with the government’s Community Works Programme to assist with establishing home gardens. A management committee assists with directing the focus of the hub
