INDIGENOUS GARDENSIt is our intention to keep the Umngazi garden as indigenous as possible. All new planting is indigenous and only organic compost is used. No harmful chemicals are used in the garden.
WATER CONSERVATIONEvery effort has been made to conserve water. Water saving practices have been put in place in our gardens and throughout the property.
ENERGY CONSERVATIONOur energy campaign in 2011 resulted in us installing heat pumps onto all geysers at Umngazi.
RECYCLING & WASTE MANAGEMENTMuch of our refuse is burnt in our own incinerators and as much as is possible is reused or recycled. All old cooking oil is removed from site and old to be recycled into biodiesel. Unfortunately there is currently no recycling plant within the area – we will however keep you posted on this if there are any updates in the future.
