Eunephacia Joye is helping others learn to alternatively farm in the drought areas of Durban, South Africa with an innovative plastic bag planting system known as Umgibe (pictured below). Rather than plant vegetables in the ground or in pots, bags are hung to serve as the planters.
"Some of the value adds of Umgibe is that it is eco-friendly, less physical work, organic and it can be erected anywhere even on roof tops," said Joye.
This system makes farming accessible and food affordable. Kudos to this Community Development Manager for serving the needs of gardeners in her community.
