who we are

Established in 2006, Urban Harvest is South Africa’s pioneer edible garden service. We have installed and maintained over 500 unique, beautiful and highly productive food gardens which provide healthy food and beautiful spaces to people from all walks of life.

We are invested in every garden we grow, taking care to design and create beautiful spaces and only use the highest quality resources.

Through careful attention to detail, and ongoing communication, our dedicated team will ensure you are happy with your garden’s progress, and will always greet you with a smile.


I believe that by working with people and nature to create an abundance of healthy, organic and locally grown food in our communities, we can reawaken traditional values, a deeper reverence for the earth and practically reestablish a healthier balance in our lives.




“We would like to express our greatest gratitude for the professionalism we at Greenpop experienced in working with Urban Harvest. Their kindness is only exceeded by their efficiency. Urban Harvest’s project management skills stand apart from all their competitors and we will be partnering with them for future school makeovers. Their teaching reached us, the school and our staff and we have all learnt so much.”

“Urban Harvest has been an invaluable partner to us in establishing a bountiful, thriving food garden at Cavalleria Primary School. The team worked closely with us from the design stage, taking careful account of our requirements and intended outcomes for the garden. The project was expertly carried out and our garden installed well within the scheduled time frame, despite a rainy winter season!

As the garden took shape, we received regular communications and progress updates from the team, who also went above and beyond the project scope by assisting us to find and appoint a Head Gardener.

Urban Harvest have continued to work closely with the kitchen staff at the school, sharing recipes and planting new crops according to the needs of the feeding scheme.

We have found Ben and his team at all times an absolute pleasure to work with, as they are consistently efficient, passionate about their gardens and always willing to go the extra mile in delivering solutions. Their integral role in establishing and maintaining our food garden according to sound permaculture principles has ensured its success. I can unreservedly recommend Urban Harvest’s services to future partners.”

“Thank you for the wonderful work your team is doing. Not only do our kids get to eat healthy organic vegetables, they also experience where the food comes from.”
