The HARVEST CENTRE dream was born over a 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 felt something more tangible needed to be done in the light of so many 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 and repaired 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.
Welding, forging, carpentry, upholstery, sewing, lazer cutting, pottery, leatherwork, craft beer brewery, Gin Destillery, fence making, wire art and various other services are also available...
To bring about positive change in a previously dilapidated environment.
To create opportunities through finantially viable businesses and skills tranfer opportunities, especially for previously disadvantaged communities.
What we offer...
Art and hand crafted products for sale directly from the artists and artisans. Handcrafted beer and Gin tasting.
A large fully equiped DIY Workshop is available - you can enquire for your own "hire by the hour or by the month" workspace.
