You don’t have to have a garden to be a gardener. SmallFolders
is a new project sponsored by the Cafédirect Producers Foundation.
Cafédirect’s Producer Foundation is a charity which works with 280,000 small holder farmers across twelve countries in the developing world. Their work enables these small folders to develop their own projects, share information and improve their livelihoods.
Smallholders make flatpack urban gardening products inspired by African and Latin American farmers. Small Folders will help you grow herbs & plants from your balcony or windowsill. A crowd funding project has been launched to help get this project off the ground.
The money raised will help the development of farming techniques that allow small holders to adapt to climate change. This will help them to diversify their incomes and increase their crop yields. These innovations will also enable the development of gardening products that can be used in the constrained outdoor spaces that those of us who live in London are familiar with.
