The City of Joburg demolished Mama Fifi’s urban farm, but she’s determined to grow again
8 August 2022
Refiloe Molefe, known to many as Mama Fifi, is determined to rebuild a new thriving inner city farm. Her acclaimed Bertrams urban farming project was taken over by the City of Johannesburg and its fields bulldozed in June this year. As a result, her donations to a network of feeding schemes were brought to a halt, as well as a youth training agri-programme, both of which have benefited thousands of people over the years.
