Getting children to learn how to grow vegetables at school is an idea which is growing in popularity across Mzansi.
The topic is close to the heart of Branden Gee and his business partner Cameron Blair, who also have a hydroponic set-up in Pinetown outside Durban, as well as an e-commerce business.
“Our major ambition is to get either a hydroponic system or a 100 percent organic and sustainable vegetable patch in every school in the country. That’s the reason we do it for free. We want everyone to learn how to grow their own food and self sustain.
“Each project deals with a different aspect that contributes to a greater goal, and that goal is sustainable living,” said Gee.
