    We are moving to Eagles Ayre in the Camperdown area. I am thinking of acquiring a small holding and growing organic vegetables.
    Naturally I will do a complete feasability study [having had businesses before].
    Would just like you input as to popular, or scarce crops, which are more profitable and easier to grow; and some info on markets etc. Naturally the local population would be involved, and would improve their life, as they will be employed.

    Thank you in anticipation.
    Lynne Smith.

    Do you have any consultants in the Northern/Western suburbs of Johannesburg? I have had an unsuccessful hip replacement, so cannot bend, but would be most interested in the kitchen garden pots idea for some herbs and a few organic veggies.
    Hope to hear, thanks, Alexa

    Anyone in Jhb. I’m in Hougton.


  21. I would like to know if your remarkable programmes are franchised or how can I get trained to use your systems as your independant consultant in the ex-Transkei area where there is huge gap? There is a project that I can raise funds for to support Opharns and Vulnerable Children at one of the most poorest areas in the Eastern Cape. I would like to involve Urbanharvest by asking for quotations for this project.

    I live in Jhb. Do you have anyone here we can contact?

    Dear Ben, Susan & Jakkie

    You guys rock! Jay and I keep track of what you are doing and now that we own a house we can’t wait to start our own garden! your photo’s are beautiful and a big inspiration to us here in the U.S.

    Good luck with all you do in the future!

    much love,
    Lanie & Jay

    Please let me know how much your square wooden vegie boxes are planted up (I think I will need about 11). On your website – in the photos where the beds have edging and are shaped – do you do that or is it up to the customer to do the sizing and edging prep work prior to you planting?Last question if I want to do an installation in both my domestics gardens in Phillipi and Kayalitsha – will you do an installation and educate them on care once off?


  26. Posted by Danielle on January 17, 2011 at 9:42 am

    To whom it may concern,
    We are very interested in your services and would like to know if you are currently installing edible gardens in Johannesburg?
    Thank you & kind regards,

    have you got a service like this in gauteng


  28. Posted by Clare on May 14, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Hi there
    Have you have someone to install edible gardens in the Bedfordview area – if not how can you assist us from Cape Town

    Hi Ben, Jakkie & Team,
    Please advise whether or not you plan on starting up something similar in Johannesburg. I LOVE gardening & have had a compost heap/veggie patch for many years. Nothing beat seeing what grows and thrives NATURALLY simply from throwing all veggie skins, crushed egg shells, pumpkin pips, tea leaves etc. into a small area of the garden. It’s almost therapeutic watching the many weird and wonderful variety of veggies that come up. It’s the cheapest form of therapy and it doesn’t cost a cent. Everyone should have a little compost heap somewhere in their garden. Nothing beats getting your hands dirty and connecting with the earth. It’s GREAT!!!! The earthworms thrive and you have a patch of healthy ‘fertile’ soil. I sincerely hope you are planning on growing the Urban Harvest idea by branching out and starting up here in Johannesburg. WONDERFUL idea!!!! I’d love to lend a hand!!!


  30. Posted by Kim on June 7, 2011 at 9:56 am

    GREAT idea!!! Hope Urban Harvest plan on spreading their wings and opening up in Johannesburg. We need their innovative idea’s and vision desperately. Schools, recreational area’s, undeveloped area’s where peole litter and don’t care about their surroudnings need to be educated and shown HOW to make a living for themselves by growing veggies and herbs etc. etc. I can think of a hundred places that could easily be tranformed into magical little spots. There are many barren open spaces in various suburbs/area’s that are an absolsute eye sore. Maybe Urban Harvest could branch out and start up branches in Johannesburg South, West, East and North. It would be like a breath of ‘fresh air’ having more & more people getting involved. That way, there would be far less mounds of litter an dfilth as everything will be recycled etc. etc. Looking forward to seeing Urban Harvest in Johannesburg.
