Food in the Ground is a programme of the Siyazisiza Trust, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, designed to better prepare marginal rural communities for current and future impacts and for post-crisis recovery. A core component of the initiative is renewing focus on food security amongst community farmers; and the continued generation of income and access to supply chains by smallholder farmers.
