Jeff Cullis, Urban Organics

AeroBuddies is 702’s 2017 Small Business Awards winner.

Urban Organics came out tops at this year’s CapeTalk Small Business Awards.

Ray White (in for The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield) interviewed AeroBuddies founder Joe Phalwane and Jeff Cullis, owner at Urban Organics, for the weekly “ShapeShifter” feature.

AeroBuddies is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) “education enrichment company”.

It provides aviation and aeronautics inspired lessons for learners of all grades.

Urban Organics designs and develops hydroponics and aquaponics for urban and rural communities and offers workshops on how these systems can be used for fresh produce.

Listen to the interviews in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

It’s a combination of two of my passions - aviation and youth development.
