Soil For Life is an NGO based in Constantia who help to educate and train under-privileged communities to grow their own food gardens. They work together with communities to help to create sustainable gardens able to feed those who care for them, and sell what they cannot consume.
There are a couple of ways that donations to Soil For Life are spent:
- R30 buys 5 seed packets
- R50 buys 2 large bags of compost
- R100 buys a spade, a garden fork, seedlings, herb plants or fruit tree saplings
Each year on World Environment Day (5 June) Soil For Life hosts Eat For The Earth, a campaign to raise funds and awareness for the work they do within under-privileged communities and World Environment Day itself.
Soil for Life are based in Constantia where they produce and sell wonderful vegetables, fruit, herbs and seeds. Their main work is within under privileged communities where they teach people how to start their own home gardens, provide on-going support through a team of field workers and over time see them blossom into agricultural experts! Our ambition is to help them see their vision come to fruition by aiding in whatever way possible.

The work that Soil for Life does is vital to delicious raw ingredients - creating the ultimate organic soil for vegetables and herbs. Even better, their method (the peace garden) is really easy - I have two beds done already and they are setting up gardens in the townships as it's so easy to garden like this. I've decided that every order will have this donation.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
