Veggie Garden at Ezemvelo

We started the fencing for the veggie garden this week close to the student housing at Eland Lapa. This will be the demonstration garden for our upcoming Food and Our Future 5 day workshop on GROW BIOINTENSIVE mini farming in September. We are also planning a 3 month course in Sustainable Agriculture to begin with this workshop.

Pictured at top is Simphiwe Tinini and Sandile Nkosi with their students in South Africa's first GROW BIOINTENSIVE courses at CIDA City Campus in Johannesburg. Their programme has over 200 graduates since it started in 2007.

The lower picture shows Simphiwe next to the fence for the new Biointensive demonstration garden at Ezemvelo.

  1. Dear Dr. Horsfield and Simphiwe Tinini:

    Congratulations on your garden fencing, it's a big step! Don't let the baboons get you down and keep going strong.
    It's a great project that you are doing and many people will benefit from it in the future.
    Way to go!
