About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Gods Garden is a 19 Ha property currently getting back on our feet after the worse drought in 100 years.
We about 7km from White River and 45 Km from the Kruger National Park. We also in a tourist hub where you can experience some of the best South Africa can offer.
The draught has given us an opportunity to start again. We have to modify our fish breading operation that goes hand in hand with our lettuce growing operation. We currently have 3 raft beds and would like to expand it to 10.
The back to Eden project we focusing on growing our edible garden using bark covering.
We need to build some chicken coops that will be monkey and mongoose proof because the mongoose have been breaking into our chickens and stealing eggs. We also need to build net covering to safe guard our produce from monkeys.
So re-establishing our operation is mostly going to be around construction. brick and cement work. putting up poles, nets and chicken mesh.

After Agriculture College I was an exchange student in America and Australia and then lived in New Zealand for two years. After being on the road for 5 years working on different farms I returned home helping my dad with his truck crane rental business and still working with him part time. My husband and I are now building a self sustainable farm for future training for up and coming young rural farmers of South Africa.
