See structures made from recycled materials. Discuss with Xolani the viable options derived from access to these structures, not only for sustainable farming and housing but also as a training facility.

This in turn gives back to the functioning of the sustainable farming project. You will visit MyMito Coffee Shop for a delicious cappuccino and light snack. Fresh produce is harvested from Xolani’s garden.

You will learn more about Masifunde, who strive towards sustainability in its project design within Walmer Township. They have cultivated community-development projects and activities, which are now registered as independent legal entities. They are not only financially independent service providers, but also function as a training centre transferring vocational skills to out-of-school youth.

A truly remarkable transformation within this local community. As social enterprises, profits are used to subsidize less-profitable ventures and to initiate further enterprises with social impact.

Then continue on to lzandla Zethu African Jewelery, where you will meet a local craft person and learn more about this authentic handmade range of products. lzandla Zethu means ‘our hands’ in the Xhosa language, and this image is carried over in the jewelery design here.

After a fun-filled half-day, clients will be returned to their hotel.
