Rooftop veggie garden

The Ubuntu centre in Zwide was opened in 2010 and is an over R40 million investment into one of the poorest communities in South Africa. The centre belongs to the Ubuntu Education Fund which is one of the most successful and internationally renowned NGO’s in the Eastern Cape and provides health and educational services right in the township.  Due to a lack of space but still in need of fresh vegetables to feed the kids with, the centre has established a rooftop vegetable garden which means that they would always have fresh produce right there on the premises.


  1. Great idea! I wish my vege garden looked as good as this. Mine is rather wind-swept and horrible at the moment.
