Promise Nguse

I grew up in Umzimkulu, KwaZulu-Natal with my grandmother and grandfather.

I worked in construction as a teenager before coming into contact with a mentor who introduced me to organic farming. For 7 years I gained experience in establishing and maintaining vegetable gardens for customers – learning how to plant and enhance the growth of vegetables and other organic foods.  

I then participated in the establishment of Moringa, Neem and Tea Tree plantations. I love establishing vegetable gardens and nurturing plants from seedlings. 

In the future, I hope to be involved in teaching children and young adults who have a desire to learn.
