About Us

Nestled away in the center of a small town called Vredenburg you’ll find a little gem called Forest Friends Urban Farm.

We’re a small family that is passionate about the environment, healthy food, food security and that’s exactly why we’re here. To help you grow nutrient dense food in the comfort of your own home or garden space. To assist you to become more self-reliant, self-sufficient and to live closer to nature.

We aim to create a space where you can find the necessary materials to get started like seeds, growing mediums, grey water systems, tools and naturally some good advice.

Our Vision

We live in a society where a convenience culture prevails, where everyone wants everything now, often forgetting that good things take time effort and love. It is therefore now more important than ever to teach people (especially children) the principles of sustainable living.

To create within people a sense of respect for themselves and the world in which they live love and grow. This can be achieved by fostering hope and love within ourselves, seeing ourselves as part of our world and environment not just in the world but of the world.

We need to provide people with hope for their future, love for their world and everything that
resides in it. It is with this idea in mind that we established Forest Friends.

The creation of the guardians of our world start with each of us Forest Friends was founded in 2013 by Louis and Nadine Kuys and inspired by nature.
