Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

At Urban Harvest, we integrate ‘waste materials’ into our innovative designs. This keeps our prices low while helping, in our little way, to keep landfills clear.  Wine bottles, wine barrels, old roof tiles, rubble, scrap wood and tyres are some of the readily available ‘waste’ resources we utilize in making our gardens functional and beautiful.   Take a look at the Photos below:

    Wow!!!! I’m lost for words. What an amazing concept. LOVE the whole reuse, recycle and reduce. I’ve also had a compost heap for the past twenty odd years and now that I’m living in a REALLY small ‘complex’ of sorts, I can no longer have my usual thriving HAPPY compost heap. However, I’ve dug a small section in the tiny back ‘garden’ area and continue to crush up egg shells, empty out used tea bags, off cuts from all veggies, skins, seeds etc. I now have the weirdest ‘supposed’ yellow/red peppers growing that have turned out orange & they’re a really weird shape. I plan on tasting them soon!! I’d really like to get involved with Urban Harvest but I’m in the concrete jungle.(Johannesburg) I’d love to start up an organic fruit/vegetable farm. NO insecticides, pesticides etc. etc. Everything has to be grown naturally. Good, healthy and environmentally friendly in every way possible. Keep up the good work guys and if you need help SHOUT!!!! I’m available weekends (Just started an 8-5 normal office job so I’m ‘stuck’ Mondays to Fridays.) Hoping for manna to fall from heaven then I plan on moving to the Cape and starting up a farm similar to the Urban Harvest way of doing things. Watch this space!!!!! A wannabe ‘Mother Earth’ Keep up the good work. Every project you’ve done looks AMAZING!!!! I also recyle vitually anything and everything. (More peole need to get involved and realize how vitally important it is.) Cheers, Kim
