South African urban farmers grow herbs and crops on rooftops
Nhlanhla Mpati is tending his farm in Johannesburg, South Africa. Mpati is among a group of farmers in the country who are growing herbs and other crops on rooftops in urban cities.
He is part of project run by various organizations that wants to make more produce available in the inner city and provide jobs for entrepreneurs who want to farm but don’t have access to land.
Mpati grows basil and other herbs at the farm using a hydroponics system on top of the city’s Chamber of Mines building.
