The Imagine Durban project has formed a partnership with TAFTA (The Association for the Aged) to assist them grow organic food gardens at their old age homes. The purpose of the project is to encourage and empower old age homes, local communities and local schools to grow their own food gardens. Two gardens are proposed. One will be built for the Frail Care Centre and the second will be built at the Service Centre. The Service Centre is used by the community as a clinic and for other activities. The rationale behind developing a garden at the Service Centre is that it will encourage the community to take ownership of the gardens and also replicate them in the community.

The garden beds will be created by using cement blocks to ensure accessibility and comfort for all, including those in wheelchairs, and to encourage the use of organic kitchen and garden waste. A worm compost will also be introduced into these beds, which is both cost effective and encourages recycling. This type of gardening has been proven to produce a high yield over a short period of time and with limited space.
