"Umgibe Farming educates the young and elderly to grow" food in handmade " Potting Bags" sewn by community women's groups on sewing machines.
"We have no wasted water, due to our BioProTecEnv " Bamboo Capillary Wicking Watering System (BCWWS)", stated MacLachlan.
Umgibe Farming "economizes" the poor out of poverty and educates the young in growing food with limited resources. Self Esteem, Self Worth, and Financial Success is created
"one person" at a time using the Umgibe Farming method.
Umgibe Farming Organics and Training Institute is a carbon-saving, ecological, organic, income generating vegetable-growing system which provides a platform to market vegetables grown by grassroots farmers in South Africa. Umgibe supports local farming co-operatives by providing access to technology, training, and markets.
Investing in Umgibe and supporting their vision for student farmers helps to break the cycle of poverty and provide a future for the upcoming generation.
Student farmers sign up for the program, are trained, and receive a household farm. Umgibe provides continual support and contracts to fill orders with commercial customers.
"Umgibe Fugal Climate Smart System wastes nothing. All organic vegetables are grown raised approximately 80 cm off the ground. There is no excess waste, no wasted water, no pollution to the environment, nor the insects that inhabit it," stated MacLachlan.
