This micro enterprise village shows the benefits of building on synergies. Wood from a tree-felling business is used by another to make rustic furniture, while a working farm grows organic vegetables sold at the Millstone Farmstall & Cafe or via the Ethical Coop.

This aims to be the first urban eco-village in Cape Town with some really innovative interventions.

The village was created with the aim of establishing a working model of a sustainable eco-village and to encourage an environment of respect and consideration for people, nature and diversity.

There are a number of buildings that are of historic interest - Millstone Cafe, a predominantly vegetarian restaurant is located in one that has been renovated, and is a great child-friendly venue - support them!
