Our Highlight Projects
The Sack Space Project
The Sack Space Project primarily addresses Food Insecurity and other socio-economic challenges faced by our communities. We utilize an innovative Vertical Farming method using discarded sack bags, this method upcycles the sack bag by extending its usefulness. This project is simple innovative with no labor intensity, saving close to 60% of water as compared to conventional farming and it requires no large amount of land space as one sack can hold a minimum of 23 seedlings of vegetables. The variety of fresh produce that can be planted and harvested on a sack bag includes, Spinach, Beetroot, Lettuce, Onions, Carrot, Potatoes and herbs.
