Transgardens presents the news feeds of educational gardens in France and several African countries in the aim of exchanging experiences, advices, and creating links between children of different countries and different cultural backgrounds.


Transgardens is an initiative of Designing Hope bringing together educational and experimental gardens in several countries in Africa and France. Designing Hope has always promoted family farming in its projects. One of the early project in South Africa aimed at encouraging “Door Gardens”, (family garden of the size of a door) that can be grown outside the house, even in a township with only little ground around the shacks.

Since 2013, Designing Hope has launched a training program to permaculture techniques and agroecology.

This knowledge promotes access to nutritionally balanced meals, in a context of physical fragility, poverty and rise of food prices, accentuating malnutrition.

Reproducible seeds are made available, and training on seeds conservation enable families to be self sufficient over time.
