AAPDEP builds community gardens and garden collectives in an effort to address the widespread food insecurity and poor health experienced by African people around the world. With an emphasis on collective work, skill sharing and sustainable practices, AAPDEP’s agricultural programs have the following objectives:
To increase the capacity of African people to feed ourselves (thereby decreasing our dependence on outside forces)
To improve the overall health of the African community by increasing access to high quality, organically grown produce
To cultivate community ties
To create economic development
*Although we would love skilled agriculturalist & gardeners to join us you don't have to have any agriculture education to volunteer in the AAPDEP Northwood Garden!
Zenzele Consignment’s mission is to provide an economic vehicle through which people can shop and consign hand-made original African clothing, accessories, art, small household goods, personal care products, literature and other such products in an effort to support practical programs that contribute to self-reliance and genuine development in African communities throughout the world.
Zenzele Consignment is an economic development institution of the nonprofit All African People's Development & Empowerment Project (AAPDEP), building self-reliance programs for health, agriculture and education.
