Own your own Mooibos vertical hanging garden

The Mooibos garden is a collaboration between 6 UCT students. The concept behind the Mooibos Garden is to allow anyone to have a vertical garden on their wall. The product consists of a wooden framed box, which securely holds an array of pot plants. Very little space is needed and the Mooibos has been designed so that putting it up on your wall is as easy as hanging up a picture frame.

 

The Mooibos Garden project started in 2012, when six UCT commerce students planned a startup company with the idea to bring vertical gardening into any space. The project won first place in a Business Strategy Project undertaken by 450 students at UCT.

Currently, three of the six team members (Shaun, Andrew and Ben), are pursuing the Mooibos Gardens business and have launched their product, “the Mooibos”, through the crowd funding site www.thundafund.com.

You can pre-order a Mooibos on the Thundafund site, as well as pledge funds towards the Mooibos campaign. The launch is also going to allow the team the opportunity to sell different sizes and colours.

"Once your Mooibos arrives, it is ready to use and all it needs is your love and care for it to stay healthy." – Shaun Michaels, one of the Mooibos Gardens founders.

The Mooibos Gardens company has many future plans, and the main focus of the three young entrepreneurs, is to bridge the gap between those who garden and those who don’t.
