Soil for Life is a Cape Town-based non-profit organization teaching people how to build the soil and grow healthy plants. We strive to help people reconnect with the earth and to realize their potential for healthy, productive and fulfilling lives. We’re changing people from the inside out.
Our hope for a healthy world rests on re-establishing the harmony between the earth and its people, and so we teach as many people as we can how to grow their own food and to care for the earth. The majority of Cape Town’s households are food insecure, and for these families the ability to grow their own food and generate some small income represents a genuine step up in the world.
Soil for Life educates and trains people in organic food gardening using low-cost, soil building, water-wise, environmentally friendly technologies in whatever small space is available. We run hands-on practical training courses in impoverished communities and provide ongoing support and advice.
