Project 1: Papkuilsfontein Mountain Bike Routes

In 2019, we initiated a sustainable land management project with the Van Wyk family on the farm Papkuilsfontein, near of Nieuwouville. They had already developed tourism as an alternative income stream, but this was very dependent on the flowers, which do not bloom every year. Our project added a new tourism component (mountain bike trails) to their business, and in return they have agreed to declare the farm as a Protected Environment. Watch the video for more information on the project.

Project 2: Loxton Commonage

This project is being implemented in collaboration with emerging farmers, who farm on Loxton's commonage. The project requires the dividing of camps and the implementation of improved grazing systems. The farmers provide the labour for the erection of new fences and apply the new sustainable land management practices. Watch the video for more information on the project.
