    The Farm and Garden National Trust provides free and/or subsidised services, training, networking and resources to community-based projects for poor and needy persons, including but not limited to empowerment projects involving “micro-farming” (organic and bio-dynamic gardening and small farming), in order to improve quality of life and raise them out of poverty. The Farm and Garden National Trust believes in building a sustainable lifestyle, in which people re-learn how to feed themselves through the planting of their own vegetables. Through the Farm and Garden National Trust, organic micro-farmers (that is, anyone who is running a home garden, community garden or a small farm) in poor communities can get a minimum of ongoing help. The kind of help such people need is usually very modest, but it is also very specific, and corresponds to their stage of development along a development chain. In order to achieve its objectives, the Farm and Garden National Trust: • Raises funds to assist micro-farmers and their activities • Promotes the provision of training, support or assistance to community-based projects • Provides permanent follow-up support to micro-farmers • Assists community-based organisations to associate with and share skills, experience and resources with other, similar community-based projects, and associations serving such projects • Supplies subsidised assessment services to micro-farming associations to assist them to continually evaluate their progress and improve practice • Supplies free and/or subsidised professional services (organisational development, accounting and legal) to micro-farming groups and associations which directly support micro-farmers through selected partners/service providers
