I have been asked by “Your Local Food Heroes”  to present a  vegetable and herb workshop  in Stanford on 16  November.

The workshop will be intensely practical and fun, teaching you how to start and grow your own vegetable garden covering soil preparation, composting, planning your garden, companion planting, seeds and seedlings.

Booking is essential as space is limited. Cath Croxton from Your Local Food Heroes can be emailed at croxton@gmail.com for details and bookings

Viva Art Fest Stanford 2013

_DSC9505

With great joy and a surprising success we, The Viva Foundation of South Africa, created the world’s first Living Art Gallery in Mamelodi, Tshwane, by transforming actual shack-homes into works of art, with the aim to attract tourism and business to the community. And it worked. We had great media exposure and people are coming all year to see the artworks and to enjoy the hospitality of the community. And now this initiative is coming to Stanford!

How does it work?
We are a non-profit organization and we believe in the wealth and talents of the local communities, we want to support.
In Stanford this community is battling with unemployment, drugs and young people without hope. Green tourism and Stanford as an Art Route Destination is one answer.

The painted houses of the living art gallery have a dramatic effect, not only aesthetically, but also in the general attitude of the community. Known local and artists form abroad specializing in different art-disciplines, contribute and volunteer their time and resources in this project. They create a lasting art work to enjoy.

In partnership with the Stanford Community Police Forum, the David Krut Foundation, the Tourism Office and many small and powerful local initiatives the first Viva Art Fest Stanford will take place this year (after the first Viva Art Fest in Zwelihle that created a stir in the communities and will bring tourism and prosper local businesses).

Time: Saturday 2 Nov 2013 ALL DAY 8am to 7pm
