I was at Space of Love festival at Blue Hippo farm, Greyton. Just across the stream lives Jo Dyantyi with his beautiful edible forest garden. I popped over with my camera to visit him again.
Ivan is doing his afternoon garden routine every few days. He religiously waters, feeds and tends to his vegetable patches. Being a little short of space in our vegetable garden (converted driveway) he has adopted a patch on an empty nearby plot for his potatoes and tomatoes.

I went to meet Sam Adams at Living Green farm near Kommetjie, Cape Town. The ground was pretty much beach sand, yet there stands a farm. In less than a year they have become self sufficent in vegetables, meat and herbs (project discontinued).
In about 2003
I was buying some organic veges at Oude Molen shop near Pinelands, Cape Town, when I drove past this garden.
Jono and the kids were busy in their garden doing some beautiful work…

I went with Rachel Briant to see Wynberg Night Shelter worm project. Michael Valentine (having trained with Soil for Life) is leading a project there using the waste from the food kitchen to make glorious worm compost !
They sell the worm compost and the concentrated liquid the worms produce. They also have the most amazing vegetable gardens enriched by the worm compost to supply the food kitchen.
(apologies for poor quality sound – after this I bought a wind muff 😅 )
