who we are

Little Green Things (LGT) is a community urban garden whose philosophy is based on the ‘garden to table’ concept of harvesting and eating food that you grow. We strive to be an environmentally friendly as well as socially conscious business that provides skills and income generating opportunities (development and poverty reduction) for persons with disabilities.

Our passion to want to make a difference is embedded in our culture. The LGT culture is that of positive, high vibrational energy that encourages a sense of well-being, therefore, we aim to transform our space into a vibrant, happy and beautiful space where learning and creativity is stimulated and where people of any ability can thrive.

Monthly Market

Come along and support your community by buying fresh locally grown organic produce and experience the benefits of the ‘garden to table’ movement.

Our market days take place on the last Saturday of each month from 10h00 – 14h00.

Have a look at some of our products

We have recently expanded our range to include products and services that would appeal to the growing cannabis industry. Our product range  includes a deep water culture aeroponic system and breathable geotextile grow bags. Both the assembly of the aeroponic systems and manufacture of grow bags are done by persons with disabilities.
