The iGardi Project is a fun and unique way to help increase the diversity of food and nutrition in underprivileged communities through our proven model for water-wise vegetable food gardening that educates and empowers individuals to ensure food security. The iGardi Project hosts a number of educational programs within communities to ensure that anyone is able to grow their own nutritious food sustainably. By connecting volunteer teams, NGOs and providing avenues for investment, we ensure local community involvement, training and build community ownership. 

HOW DO OUR WATER WISE GARDENS WORK?

WAYS TO SUPPORT US

WATER WISE FOOD GARDEN BOXES

 

Our water-wise  vegetable garden boxes are a unique and effective means of growing vegetables. They are self-contained raised beds with built-in reservoirs that supply water from the bottom up – ensuring minimal maintenance by only requiring watering every 2 to 3 weeks and achieving a massive water saving of up to 70% annually. The water reservoir is made up of round rocks and perforated pipe and is separated from the soil by a layer of landscaping fabric. Water is automatically wicked upwards towards the top of the soil medium to irrigate the plants, which encourages deeper root growth and more drought-resistant plants, while also significantly reducing the maintenance needs of the garden. The use of Self-watering and drought resistant food gardens are particularly important in South Africa where water resources are limited.
