Peas on Earth

Peas on Earth offer volunteers the chance to learn new skills on a South African small-holding in one of the country’s most scenic areas. 

Located in the Eastern Cape, Peas on Earth grow vegetables and keep domestic stock, including horses. We are also involved in developing a vegetable garden for the local school and are becoming increasingly involved with food security training.

Peas on Earth is located on a rural, gravel road, approximately 20km from the Wild Coast towns of Kei Mouth, Morgan Bay and Haga Haga.

Peas on Earth is a holistic venture, combining environmentally friendly farming practices with community upliftment in an effort to rehabilitate Mpetukop Farm, its soil and its unique ecosystem. In keeping with these goals, there are both animals and plants on the land, and they are rotated, creating a mutually beneficial ecosystem, which supports a diversity of species, with the aim of improving the soil for future generations.

Volunteers from all over the world visit Peas on Earth to learn about traditional growing methods, as well as Permaculture, the concept of food forests, companion planting and many other techniques. Volunteers also assist in raising money to uplift the local community and help at the local school on a weekly basis, cultivating a vegetable garden and working alongside pupils to improve their understanding of small-scale, self-sustainable agriculture.

The main emphasis of Peas on Earth the production of vegetables, herbs and fruits according to the natural rhythms of the earth.
