Green Communities has created the "Best Practice" models within national and local Integrated Development Plans, focusing primarily on job creation, the alleviation of crime and poverty and the health and well being of our indigent communities through greening interventions.

Of prime importance to Green Communities is the alleviation of poverty and the creation of greater opportunities for community members through urban agriculture, open space development, water and waste management and sustainable livelihoods’ projects.
