This photo by Amber Breitenberg really shows the strength of women farmers!

Global Giving sponsors a wonderful program is South Africa, Abalimi Bezekhaya. They teach micro-organic farming, right in the peri-urban slums of Capetown.

Raising vegetables where nothing grew before is magical all by itself, but the benefits are much larger.  The micro-farmers gain skill, earn livelihood, and provide top-quality locally grown vegetables which supplement diets and improve health.

Photographer Amber Breitenberg‘s photo above is so gorgeous!  Not only does it convey the power of women farmers, but also really shows the overflow of healthy food and the whole team working to bring it to market. You can practically taste the coleslaw!
