Undertaking the mission to green the city, underscores the belief that people need a holistically healthy environment. Greening Pretoria will have a social, economic and environmental impact. Currently large parts of the community in the city has no access to safe green spaces.  

Focusing on the economic effect, using the Tekano model, gardens provide a perfect space for people who are desperate to move into the work force. It is a healthy low-stress environment where people can acquire the discipline needed to be a productive worker. Urban agriculture affords new working opportunities in an untapped market. 

The produce delivered will be sold, and in this way it will be a self-sufficient project. 

Volition aims to use urban agriculture as a tool to rejuvenate the city while creating work opportunities for unemployed and desperate people in the city. 

Greening Pretoria will: 

·       provide access to safe green spaces for the inner city community

·       provide a training space for people who are desperate to move into the work force

·       create food security
