110% GREEN

RECYCLING

As part of the 110% Green Campaign we have made a commitment to start recycling, reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill, create jobs and educate our employees and residents about caring for our environment and preserving our natural resources.

WORM FARM

Our sandy, depleted soils in Dik Delta were in serious need of some attention so that they are able to produce healthy and vigorous plants, in quantities large enough to supply our Fyndraai restaurant. Worm composting is a process where earthworms are used to process waste materials into a valuable fertiliser. Click here to read more about our worm farm project.

DIK DELTA

An unused portion of farmland on Solms-Delta has been developed into an indigenous culinary garden and fynbos/ renosterveld  park, called Dik Delta.  Over the last 320 years this neglected piece of land has seen various uses, initially as grazing land, then as a citrus orchard, and finally as a veritable dumping site.
