Come and join us in Swellies at the beautiful Gaia Sanctuary, to learn with me, a variety of natural building techniques as well as an interesting system of a vermicomposting toilet that can not only eliminate the old school long drop system, the need for lugging yucky buckets of poop and washing after (saving water) but also give you a constant flow of worm compost Not only is it a reliant worm farm but also a means of transferring worms to your gardens Looking forward to seeing ya'all there!

Message received from ESKOM:

“We are happy to report, the load study indicated that we will be able to keep Swellendam substation alive during the outage.
So Swellendam town will not be affected by the outage on 8 June 2023.
But we will then need to take out Swellendam substation later the year for major maintenance.( Transformer, breakers, isolators, etc)
If the Municipality can give us a date that will suit them, except for a weekend, before October please – we can start organising the outage”

He gives excellent kisses and would make an amazing family pet.He is well socialized with other dogs. Cats have not been tested. A meet and greet with existing dogs is a must.
