The Homtini Commonage Collective

Knysna - Garden Route - South Africa

Keurhoek is a small rural community about 20 kms outside of Knysna. This community has subsisted through employment at local farms and wood mills, one of which is no longer in use and the other burnt down in the 2018 fires leaving quite a few people without work.

The aim of this initiative is to build a lasting relationship with local members in the area and bring them together in a space that promotes entrepreneurial endeavours. Starting with a pilot programme for passionate growers who will be allotted areas of arable land where they can plant seeds and benefit from the abundance of the harvest.
