Easy Peasy is a youth enterprise from the Cape Flats that was started in 2016, and strives to achieve food security through building local resilience and sustainability. In essence, the enterprise helps struggling communities grow their own food so there is always a steady supply of sustenance that is very low-cost to maintain.
It is working with an incubation space based in Mitchells Plain called SEED, which has worked in upskilling youth using permaculture for the past 15 years.
“We take pride in working with urban township youth who have typically been excluded from accessing further education or employment due to low-levels of education,” SEED said.
Based at Rocklands Urban Abundance in Mitchells Plain, their work puts youth at the centre of environmental sustainability, and the team believes that ensuring the youth is connected to the environment is the way to go forward in changing society for the better.
Easy Peasy makes it simple for people of all ages to save time and resources by growing their own healthy food; nourishing everyone and building a resilient economy and community. Easy Peasy makes its trays of vegetable seedlings available via partner individuals and organisations.
