Imagine a world where grocery shopping is as simple as walking into your garden and grabbing what you need or trading with a neighbour. Imagine having your own chickens for eggs, or goats and pigs for dairy and meat. Imagine being able to earn a living off the soil beneath your feet. This is the world we are building around Thanda.
