About Us

Herbivore Garden Centre is a Plant Nursery and Garden Centre that supplies salad, vegetable, herb, fruit seedlings, exotic flowers, succulent’s and many other gardening accessories. Our founder, Suraj Shah, started this project from his family home in Thika (Kenya) where he grew up surrounded by a family who were passionate about farming and gardening. With the green fingers passed down through generations, Suraj is a Permaculture Design Consultant and a passionate herb (amongst many other vegetables and fruits) gardener having grown herbs for over 10 years both commercially and for domestic use. 

 

 In 2019, he decided to extend his knowledge and create Herbivore Garden Centre, in Gigiri, Nairobi to help the community build low-maintenance and re-generative gardens that are sustaining and nourishing for people and our planet. We provide the necessary knowledge and tools to encourage people to grow more food at home.

 

 Permaculture is a design process to meet human needs while increasing ecosystem health. So, being a Permaculture nursery, we are designing our lives, gardens and businesses with nature rather than against it. Our objective is not to make huge profits but to provide useful and resourceful plants using regenerative methods to achieve a diverse yield.

 

 At Herbivore Garden Centre we believe that every person is an extension of Mother Nature and therefore we should grow at least a small part of our daily food intake. Whether in a few pots in your apartment balcony or in a dedicated food garden, we have an amazing range of seedling for you! Get growing today with any of our many herbs, salads, vegetables and fruits on offer.
