On our farm Rooihoogte in sunny South Africa not only delicious oranges, mandarins and lemons grow happily, but the children of our farm workers, too.
That‘s why seven years ago we founded »Speelskool«, a kindergarten that the little ones from our Rooihoogte farm and our grape farm De Hoek attend up to primary school.
It‘s so nice to see how much fun the little kids have together there. They laugh, sing, play, romp and they already help in the farm’s own permaculture garden.
In this way, they develop a special connection to nature and healthy food from a very young age – because the first harvest always goes first to the kindergarten kitchen.
