Ashoka Fellow
South Africa
Fellow Since 2018
This description of Claire Reid's work was prepared when Claire Reid was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Claire reimagines the value chain behind food production as being led by individuals and communities, enabling South Africans of all ages and backgrounds to take pride in being able to grow their own fruit and vegetables. She does this by positioning home and school-based gardens as an educational tool, through which she conveys and creates joy in growing food, creating the bedrock for a food-secure and healthy citizenry.
