KULA IS A FRESH FOOD MOVEMENT, AIMED AT PROVIDING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD WITH SAFE, ORGANICALLY GROWN, AND FRESH LOCAL PRODUCE AND INFORMATION.

Kula means ‘To Grow’ in Xitsonga (one of our indigenous South African languages). Kula is also a Sanskrit word that can be translated as “community,” “clan” or “tribe.” According to Yogapedia, Kula may also be translated to mean “community of the heart.” This implies that the community of people has shared values and a shared sense of valuing and connecting with each other.

WE’RE ABOUT GROWTH…

Kula Organic Farm has done just that for our family – it has helped to grow our love for farming (again); as well as growing a deeper connection to each other, our environment and the greater community. The farm is situated in Midrand and produces organically grown vegetables and grass-fed cattle for commercial and domestic consumption.

In 2017, we partnered with Permaculture expert, Amon Maluleke, who helped transfer his vast knowledge of farm production into making Kula more productive. He ensured that the founding principles of permaculture, which emphasise an enhanced look at food security and environmental conservation – essentially food production done in a sustainable way.

WE’RE ABOUT CONNECTING…

With this in mind, writer, agripreneur and content marketer, Nonkululeko Britton-Masekela is dedicated to educating and sharing information with the greater community around organically grown vegetables and herbs and how they can help us heal ourselves and how we can grow our own. She is passionate about connecting to like-minded people (to make the green circle bigger) and connecting people to the producers of their food (aka farmers).

Kula works with other sustainable food producers, Thembalami Food Garden (led by Amon Maluleke); Dischem Food Garden (led by Lebogang Malinga); Siyakhana Food Garden (led by Thabang Makoloi); as well as The Alex Greening Route (led by Solly Tladi) – all of them working tirelessly to ensure the production of the best (and cleanest) quality vegetables and herbs for the conscious individual.

Firstly, this is not a massive investment fund. This is my personal initiative and is funded by me, I already fund all the costs related to Ethical Suppliers and Open Education Centre. This initiative is really for the poorest of the poor who have practically nothing and need a helping hand to get somewhere.  

I used to be a chicken and pecan nut farmer a few years ago and had to quit because of family issues with the property. So yes, I have experience in farming, as well as an education site for farmers, Open Education Centre

From a little seed we can grow big things. Nature has all the means by which we can grow our money and farming is a way to do this while at the same time providing food for families and communities. 

I will buy most of the starter stock eg seeds and chicks, saplings, and so on. Watering costs will not be covered but we will try reduce water consumption as far as possible with the use of mulch and other methods to keep costs down. 

You will need to fetch the stock from the supplier if I cannot have it delivered, prepare the earth, sow the seed, water/irrigate and generally manage all day to day operations. If you are in Pretoria I will assist with the manual labour.

For the chicken farm you will need to construct a simple roosting perch from sticks and a simple hut with a basic door which can close at night. This can all be done with wood and salvaged materials. No floor needed, sand floors are best and I will explain why later. Eggs need to be collected daily and a small percentage of the eggs need to be marked and  left in their clutches in the hope that broody hens will hatch them out. We are trying to breed broodiness back in as this is in accordance with natural and humane principles. 

Once the operation turns profitable and I have recouped 200% of my total investment I will withdraw.

Remember – this is NOT a get rich quick scheme, this is only for individuals who share the same principles of ethical, eco friendly and humane farming. Profits will only start coming in after a few months, sometimes even up to a year or two, it all depends on what we are farming. 

Think about ways that you can “pay it forward”, eg seed donations etc, because this principle is extremely important. 

If all this excites you and you want to be part of the group please continue the application process below. I know it is long and tedious but I really want to get to know you a little better as we will be working closely together and I want to make sure we are a good fit :) 

If you would like to help fund the initiative please contact info@ethicalsuppliers.co.za or 071 484 5295.
