what we do
We make your food gardening experience fun, easy and hugely rewarding by providing you with the professional support you need to make your edible landscape a success at home, school and business…
You’ll be eating your own grown fresh, chemical free food, and that means your food will taste better and cost less!
We will install your garden for you, maintain your garden with you and train you to DIY. That way we ensure long-term sustainability and value.
why we do it
Its our Passion!
We believe that by helping South Africans to grow their own food, we are supporting a healthier, happier and more sustainable way of life for everyone.
Our eco-logical approach to food gardens supports natural systems and helps to cut down on the harmful effects of the packaging, travel miles and chemical pollution created by mainstream, store bought foods.
There is nothing quite so rewarding as growing your own food and sharing it with friends. Here are what others have to say….
