Our nursery is called Take Root. It is based right in the Cape Town City Bowl at Nazereth House.

It is our mission create an inner city nursery and sanctuary with a strong emphasis on sustainable gardening principles.

We are all about sustainability. Even the design of our nursery reuses old hospital beds and other equipment we have found onsite.
