The Living Classroom Film by GardenAfrica (GardenAfrica Films)
The Living Classroom is the cumulative result of GardenAfrica’s learning and work alongside agroecology specialists and training organisations in sub-Saharan Africa since 2001. GardenAfrica is a UK NGO that collaborates with in-country partners to co-design and develop initiatives that promote plant-based solutions to address everyday challenges. As such, it supports community gardeners & family farmers to build resilience & opportunity by making the most sustainable use of their natural resources; works towards conserving vital horticultural knowledge about the production of food, fuel, medicine & fibre to pass on to the next generation; and focuses on enabling people to make informed choices about the conservation & sustainable use of their biodiversity. Having set up GardenAfrica Films in 2016, we have also been able to develop, produce and distribute these films, which are made freely available with learner and facilitator support materials.
