Organic Farming

Our organic vetebale garden, first started by our german volunteers in 2011, is now professionally run by a qualified Xhosa gardener. The 5ha farm plot provides ample space to grow organic vegetables, herbs and fruit. We place great emphasis on the therapeutic value of youth being able to connect with nature through working in the vegetable gardens, thereby creating a conscious attitude towards nature and taking responsibility for their surroundings. Not only can the vegetable gardens help towards greater sustainability of the project, but they can also provide an opportunity for some youth to participate in apprenticeships of organic farming after completion of their secondary education.
