A year ago we began our collaboration with Khulisa Social Solutions, a community based organization creating bespoke interventions tailored to the needs of the people and spaces they work in.
We we’re blessed to work with Theresa, who trained in our kitchen every morning. Together we taught her how to make bread which were then made into sandwiches and sold to the Cape Argus to pay the salaries of the Khulisa workers.
In the beginning Theresa was quite shy, however the more we welcomed her in, the faster she opened herself up to us. She soon became a part of the House of H family. While we could see the routine and values of the restaurant brought Theresa an amazing boost in confidence, we were blessed to witness her flourish right before eyes.
As part of the exchange, we are allowed to pick herbs and vegetables from their community garden located next to Fruit & Veg in Roeland Street.
Since our collaboration, Khulisa has now planted a newer and larger garden at Trafalgar with inspiring plans form more city spaces converted into working gardens.
