About

School's Environmental Education and Development (SEED) is a small but well rooted non-profit and public benefits organization operating from Mitchell's Plain in the Cape Flats. The organization has been in operation for 9 years engaging in genuine and lasting partnerships with schools, teachers, children and parent communities to establish outdoor classrooms which serve as fully functional learning environments for the whole community.

Through SEED programs, children are empowered from an early age to understand growing food, food security and self-sufficiency in their communities. The SEED Organic Classroom Program has been a success because of the way it completely transforms the learning environment. It brings an agriculturally productive ecosystem, with the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems, directly into the school grounds.

The Organic Classroom Program partners schools for three years each year with a slightly different focus building on the skills of the previous year. We identify teacher 'champions' in each school who work together with facilitators .

Our facilitators provide weekly mentoring and both teachers and facilitators plan and deliver education in the garden. Continued mentoring and support is essential to build capacity of teachers and students to affect a degree of self-sufficiency for each school. SEED's work supports teachers in the relevant delivery of Outcomes Based Education. After three years we leave each schools with inspired learners and teachers, and a productive, beautiful garden for food security and education.
