From 9 years of research, we believe that water scarcity in South Africa is caused by degraded soils which can't hold onto water anymore.

It is possible for us to become water abundant again by adding organic matter to the soil which helps the soil hold onto 30% more water.

Use our composting service to turn your food waste into compost that you can use to heal SA's soil, 1 garden at a time.

Choose to Live Sustainably

Have you ever felt that pang of regret when you toss away food? It's that split-second moment—a moment of hesitation, a moment of reflection. It's the weight of knowing that what you're discarding could have been so much more.

Imagine turning that feeling of waste into worth. Every apple core, every leftover dinner plate, each item that lands in the bin—a chance for renewal. Through composting, these discarded scraps become a source of growth, healing the soil, nurturing our plants, and contributing to a sustainable water future.
