About Food Route’s Cape Town Tours

Food Route's Organic Food and Urban Farm tours create inspiring experiences for people that are interested in natural and organic urban farming, and like to eat healthy food while enjoying an eco-friendly adventure in the city or out in nature!
 Each food tour is set against the backdrop of Cape Town's magnificent landscape and includes activities like eating locally grown natural and organic food, harvesting fresh fruit and veg, planting trees in community-gardens, visiting local markets, and learning how to grow food at home.
We are passionate about promoting the small industry of local farmers and food makers that provide naturally good food using methods that are not harmful to the natural environment or our health.

Food Route tours is an initiative of an official World Design Capital 2014 project called City of Eden which is working to transform Cape Town into an edible and equitable city. The tours are a step towards this vision because they connect people to Cape Town's small industry of ethical growers, urban farms and community food gardens who in turn share their knowledge and inspire people to make better eating and purchasing choices that benefit their health, their local economies and the environment.
