This is how this effort started

On a farmer to farmer trip to South Africa in 2008 our modern agricultural ideas would not work under certain African conditions especially near "informal settlements".
Many African folks have very little money to spend and if food is available for easy picking it is taken by others in need.
While on the plane ride home (some 36 hours) I came up with the above drawing, thinking about portable food gardens ("meals-on-wheels") that could be grown just outside the door of a small dwelling. It could be watered with wash water (gray water).
