SEED operates from Rocklands Resilience Hub, our Mitchells Plain based campus, where we are privileged to teach in established systems that actively demonstrate the principles and practices Permaculture Design.
We believe in sharing education that helps individuals to belong and thrive.
Rocklands Systems focus on abundant food systems, appropriate technologies, social innovation, supporting local entrepreneurship to grow the local green economy.
Our systems are always evolving and include the following: Strategies for dealing with prevailing winds, fertility systems for growing in sand dunes, Miyawakee Forest Pilot, Food Forests, Food Gardens, Demonstration Compost toilet systems and buildings made of waste and recycled materials, including two Outdoor Classrooms and a model RDP house.
The following small businesses operate from Rocklands and would love your support:
Marley’s Café: Has been open for business since February 2023.
The Care has grown out of the kitchen that fed students on the Resilience Training. We aimed to make the meals replicable for students and planned meals at the national average of R30/person/day. This is where we began to notice the magic of Marley’s Café - with so many students testifying to its healing and transformative powers.
