Local Community Interaction

Established in 2005, Thornybush Community is a registered non-profit organisation that aims to nurture and uplift our surrounding local communities. We recently collaborated on an exciting project with our NPO partner Nourish and the Anderson Construction Foundation to create the SEDIWA Hub at Nourish Eco Village.

Nourish and SEDIWA (Sustainable Enterprise Development in Wildlife Areas) have two focus areas: connecting communities and conservation and enabling those communities to generate income through entrepreneurship and enterprise.

The SEDIWA Hub provides accredited and non-accredited training as well as hands-on learning in everything from basic early childhood development to financial literacy, sewing, hydroponics and agro-processing (making chilli sauces, chutneys and jams, for example).

A computer lab encourages children and adults to learn essential tech skills, but also enables start-ups and small business owners to use Internet banking, websites and social media platforms.

Visiting Nourish Eco Village is a great cultural tourism experience as it brings together people from all walks of life and supports the SEDIWA Hub through its coffee shop, bakery and craft store.  Nourish Eco Village is located just outside Thornybush Private Nature Reserve. The tour takes about three hours and transfer costs are quoted on request.
