Cangro Project

The Cangro Project is a proudly South African sustainable development, ‘green’ initiative in the progressive educational and food security space. The project aims to empower children with the knowledge, skills and capacity to successfully nurture and care for their very own upside-down tomato plant, simultaneously teaching them to nurture and care for themselves and their environment. Through innovation focused on the use of recycled material, Cangro hopes to inspire a generation of young thinkers and future entrepreneurs who can contribute in a meaningful way to a sustainable South Africa.
