SHORT HISTORY

​The HARVEST CENTRE dream was borna decade ago from a wish to make a difference to people's lives in Hout Bay. 

Our company sponsored the Hangberg Solution Seekers

and the Imagine Hout Bay movements for a year each but wanted to make a bigger impact in the light of so many disenfranchised people having lost their income due to dwindling opportunities in the fishing industry.

The current property was found in a badly vandalised state.. it was then bought, renovated and repurposed with private funds to build a CREATIVE HUB for Hout Bay that serves both as a skills training opportunity and a springboard for small SME's through the creation of a major TOURIST DRAWCARD. 

OUR VISION

To bring about positive change in a previously dilapidated environment by creating a

WORLD CLASS TOURIST DESTINATION

To create financially viable businesses and skills transfer opportunities to benefit previously disadvantaged communities of Hout Bay.
