Gaucho ... Gina Shoemaker

"We gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things," sings Dave Matthews in his beautiful song, Gaucho. A woman who takes his advice to heart is horticulturist, Gina Shoemaker. 

She is passionate about bringing life back to the soils and chats to us, among other things, about Landscaping, Rain Water Harvesting, Commercial Worm Farms and composting. Gina is on a mission to create jobs in South Africa and works closely with Food & Trees for Africa to ensure a greener future. She strongly believes in educating the youth to change mindsets around growing organic food and recycling of organic waste.

Gina Shoemaker: " iStart2 recycle organic waste"

Gina says: "Six days after planting, the left side was fertilized with worm castings harvested from Commercial worm farms at Food and Trees for Africa's Retabising FEED farm. Four tons of agricultural waste was recycled and here are the results!!!!" See for yourself. Get in touch with Gina at Green Earth Landscaping
