Objective: To establish an innovative and sustainable herb and vegetable garden project using plastic bottles to support a feeding scheme.

Infrastructure Costs: The project requires an initial investment of $85,000 to set up the necessary infrastructure for the plastic bottle garden.

Key Components:

  1. Garden Setup: Create a garden area with vertically suspended plastic bottles filled with soil to grow herbs and vegetables.

  2. Irrigation System: Install a cost-effective drip irrigation system to conserve water and ensure proper plant care.

  3. Seed and Soil Procurement: Purchase quality seeds and fertile soil to kickstart the garden.

  4. Training and Support: Provide training and support to volunteers and community members involved in the project.


  • Food Security: Produce fresh herbs and vegetables to supplement a feeding scheme, ensuring consistent access to nutritious food for beneficiaries.

  • Environmental Sustainability: Promote recycling by repurposing plastic bottles into productive garden containers.

  • Community Engagement: Engage volunteers and the community, fostering a sense of ownership and sustainability.

  • Cost Efficiency: Save on food costs for the feeding scheme while creating a valuable educational resource.

Sustainability: As the project grows, it can generate revenue from selling surplus produce to cover maintenance costs and support other community initiatives.

Outcome: A cost-effective, sustainable plastic bottle garden that provides fresh, nutritious food for a feeding scheme, engages the community, and supports environmental responsibility.
