A few months back, Urban Harvest volunteered at Lisa and Shepard’s Newly built house in Masiphumelele. Their house which was designed and funded by ‘Eternally Solar’ was made from sand bags to minimize energy costs to the environment.
Urban Harvest was asked to design and set-up an edible and medicinal garden for Lisa and Sheppard and train them in its uses and maintenance.
With the help of Lisa and Sheppard and kids from The Sosebenza Youth Centre we planted – wilde als, pelargonium, papino melon, oregano, thyme, fig, lemon, wilde dagga, bulbinelas, wild garlic, bay, comfrey, yarrow, sour fig, lemon grass, madumbis, mint, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, brocolli, leeks, bak choi, tat soi, beetroot, chinese cabage, celery, parsley, sage……the list goes on!
