#Constantia – Learn to Grow at the Soil for Life Autumn Open Garden

Soil for Life is hosting their Autumn Open Garden this Saturday, 6 May, in Constantia, where you can learn to grow with what you have.

From 09:00 – 15:00 you can join organic gardening talks and demonstrations, with refreshments, compost, plants and fresh organic veggies on sale. Entry is R20 per person and all profits will go towards Soil for Life’s Home Food Gardens programme, which helps people in low-income communities create sustainable home food gardens.

Soil for Life is a non-profit organisation (NPO) based in Cape Town, with a mission to grow healthy soil, people and communities. They help people learn to grow healthy, organic food using simple, low-cost, environmentally-friendly methods with the resources that are available.

Soil for Life started in 2002 and since then, has trained thousands of people in sustainable food gardening. A total of 3,930 people were trained through Soil for Life’s community-based Home Food Gardens programme between 2009 and 2016, in 16 low-income areas of Cape Town including Delft, Gugulethu, Khayelitsha, Philippi and Steenberg.

The theme of their Autumn Open Garden is ‘Start where you are, use what you have and do what you can’, which explores growing food in an earth-friendly way using rubbish and readily-available materials. The Soil for Life team will be giving talks and practical demonstrations throughout the day on composting, feeding the soil, hidden ‘treasures’ in the garden, water-wise gardening methods (such as hugel kultuur beds) and growing sprouts and micro-greens.

Soil for Life is situated just off Brounger Road, (off Spaanschemaat River Road), Constantia, Cape Town (behind the Constantia Waldorf School and Peddlars)

This family home bordering a wine estate is surrounded by spectacular views

When Matt and Victoria Bresler first visited the site of their house-to-be in the Constantia Valley, bordering Cape Town’s historic Groot Constantia wine estate, it was all because of a photograph Matt had seen in the property pages of the newspaper, which showed three palm trees and a hint of vineyard in the background, but not the house. When he got there, he suddenly understood why not. “I spent two or three minutes inside the house and an hour on the roof, just looking at the view.”

Architects Jan-Heyn Vorster and Tiaan Meyer designed the new house. Before they even considered the design of the house, Jan-Heyn and Tiaan had to gure out how to accentuate the aspects. “We went to quite a bit of trouble during the planning phase to ensure we maximised the home’s potential for views,” recalls Jan-Heyn.

The interiors essentially form another layer of the architecture, rather than functioning merely as containers for furniture. “I guess we like clean lines and Scandi stuff,” says Matt, who is quick to point out that he is by no means a minimalist. On extensive travels in his 20s and early 30s, he always filled his backpack with carefully selected artefacts, such as masks, statues and other items unique to the countries he visited. “It has been challenging – but fun – to try and balance my desire to display these hard-sought, memory-steeped items with our desire for a minimalist look,” says Matt. “I wanted to display the things that I love and feel passionate about.” He and Victoria have also collected art and artefacts on their travels together.
