From The Garden Of Uzo's Food Labs...

Our garden is doing all sorts of  wonderful things. What started out as a hobby in January this year has become  a growing business and another part of the Uzo brand. We sell our produce once a week and we now have 2 garden sites expanding everyday.
 
Here are some of the gorgeousness from our organic garden over the past few weeks

Experimenting with growing cauliflower. We have a head forming. Fingers crossed

  4. Hello Chef, well done on your inspiring recipes. Would love to have a small garden of some of the vegetables you have in your garden, do you retail the seedlings or there's a place i can purchase in Lagos? Thanks.
