Cape Town's food threatened - Help!

Cape-Towns-food-threatened---Help

Activism time Cape Town!

The issue:

The Philippi Horticultural Area (PHA) is the fertile hidden jewel of Cape Town. Its farmlands have provided food for the city since the 1600’s. It is threatened now by urban sprawl. If the proposed housing development applications proceed, Cape Town would have lost its heritage, its heart and its FOOD SECURITY. This will be a design disaster of epic proportions at a time when the city is awarded the Design Capital City 2013.

WHY CARE?

The PHA feeds all of us, especially the poor!
