“Garden gossips” is an online platform to promote an initiative of the BigPicnic Project (a horizon 2020 EU project of Botanic Garden Meise), The Food Bridge vzw, The Forgotten Green Heroes and FAAB vzw. The aim of this initiative is to provide a platform to encourage and support African Diasporans to grow their own vegetables and crops.
Living in diaspora communities, many especially the younger generation are distanced from the sources of their food which is not the case in Africa. Growing some of what we eat is not just good for us but also for the environment. By growing your own food, you have a family friendly activity that also guarantees you of fresh crops, grown with your interest at heart.
For those who are missing that connection to the land, this is an opportunity to be part of a network of experts, enthusiasts and also beginners. You can ask questions or share best practice especially about growing African vegetables and crops.
