Matava boasts an extensive organic vegetable garden offering a host of fresh vegetables and fruits used daily in our meals to provide the freshest fare.

The garden offers such fruits as coconuts, pineapple, pawpaw, guava, banana, mangos, lemons, melons, avocados and mandarins.

We also grow delicious organic vegetables such as eggplant, tomatoes, lettuces, cucumber, zucchini, carrots, cabbages, pumpkin, capsicum, radishes, and cassava.

To complement our vegetable dishes, we also grow a variety of herbs such as coriander, basil, sage and oregano. We have a nursery to start seeds in a controlled environment, which we then transplant to the garden.

Since we compost all our organic waste, we have a large compost system to help enrich the already fertile soil.
