The Umthombo safe haven off Winder st in the Durban CBD , is a place for street kids to stay the night, get some food and chill with other kids that dont have homes. They have started a surf club and are always grateful for any surf kit. I went there today to drop off some old wetsuits and saw that they have turned a fairly large triangular island outside in the street into a sustainable urban veg garden.
What an awesome sight. The veg is looking great and is interspersed with marigolds to keep the bugs away, but also add that little bit of sunshine to the garden. It is a brilliant initiative that is gaining momentum in Durban and should be encouraged in the city to soften the grey monotony.
