Soil for Life hosts events, courses and workshops to share our knowledge and raise funds for our community development programmes. Check out our Calendar for dates.


Chefs4Soil started in 2017 when Chef Ivor Jones from Chefs Warehouse at Beau Constantia and Soil for Life entered into a partnership. Soil for Life developed and now maintain a herb and vegetable garden for the restaurant at their beautiful premises on the Beau Constantia wine farm. Once a year – in June or July – Chef Ivor hosts a special dinner in support of Soil for Life.

Into its third year, the dinner is becoming a much sought after event on the Cape Town dinner circuit with over R47,000 raised in 2019.

Open Garden at Soil for Life

Our Autumn and Spring Open Gardens are a chance for young and old to spend a fun-filled day in our stunning working vegetable garden. The days are packed with inspiring garden demonstrations, talks and activities. There are a variety of organic seeds, seedlings, compost, planter boxes, vegetables and more on sale and visitors can also enjoy a range of vegetarian eats and drinks sitting in the garden.

Other events which we are currently involved in are Soiled out – a Night of Comedy and the Long Table Oyster Festival hosted at the Taproom at Jack Black Brewery.
