    Educating the youth at a school level is critical to generate the interest and enthusiasm for the "next generation" of farmers. As with most occupations and vocations, only exposure to the activity can instill interest and passion from the youth. Besides supplying to schools, we are happy to install and offer training where applicable. Urban Organics has been involved with schools since 2017.


    Urban Organics was founded with the intention of supplying primarily the domestic and catering market. It has been extremely successful and thousands of systems have been installed all over South Africa as well as across our borders and even globally. The original concept then quickly expanded and the Commercial sector soon expressed interest and starting installing bigger systems. Currently we supply Domestic, Community Gardens, Schools, NGO's and more recently Commercial farmers. We are happy to engage and be of service in any of those sectors.
