Swaziland was chosen to be the first implementation of the Never Ending Gardens project to encourage its proximity to the organization’s South African headquarters, its manageable size and geographical expanse, and the high degree of poverty and HIV / AIDS infection rate.

Additionally, while unable to contribute funds to the project, Swazi officials were open to DFA entering the country and implementing the program.

Phase one of the three-phase program ran through the week of April 25-30, 2004, and involved the planting of 12,874 ‘single gardens’ in 35 locations in the Mafutseni , Ntondozi , Ludzeludze and Mbangave localities. The project implementation team consists of 122 volunteers from the United States and South Africa, who is moving through the localities, educating and planting a variety of seedlings.

The achievements of the group were substantial: 309,000 seedlings, including cabbage, spinach, onions and green peppers. In the seasons to follow, a wider selection of vegetables will be introduced and rotated.

It is estimated that these gardens will supply immune system-boosting vegetables for over 50,000 individuals. As is well documented, the immune systems of MOST Africans are very poor, citation needed ] qui Substantially Contributes to the spleen and the infection rate of HIV / AIDS Deaths.
