What is Umgibe®?


Umgibe Farming Organics is a carbon-saving, ecological, organic, income generating vegetable-growing system which provides a platform to market vegetables grown by grassroots farmers from the sub-economic townships of South Africa.


The project is environmentally friendly in a sense that it uses less water, is organic as there are no chemical fertilizers or pesticides used.

The process of using plastic makes it easy to use the material which might have been an environmental hazard.

Without a single doubt, with each individual earning an

income the overall social life is improved.

There is an ever-increasing demand for affordable and better quality food products in the country against the background of a deteriorating global economic environment.

Umgibe® business model could not have come at a better time to penetrate the market.
