About Steven Lauwers

We are a Belgian-South African couple based in Riversdale, Western Cape, South Africa and are developing new ways of sustainable living.
Steven has a background in data and telecommunications and has a history of teaching new technologies to the worldwide engineering community. His primary goal was to teach the newest communication technologies so that everybody on this globe would have access to all information available.
Hildegard has primarily been a proud mother and made the extra efforts of degreeing in Accounting, Herbalism and Farming Management. Her primary goal was to give love and to teach values to our 2 magnificent children, Jonathan and Karen.
With the days of parenthood behind us, we have taken the decision to put our knowledge and efforts into creating a better world. We are striving for a way of living as part of nature rather than using nature to provide a living. It is our wish to develop a social, economical and sustainable way of living while promoting the values of love, peace and tolerance.

We believe in a holistic approach in creating a sustainable future and believe that permaculture is the best approach in achieving this.


Is there a future for permaculture?

Allelopathic nature of Eucalyptus Globulus

Our new home is surrounded by blue gum trees (Eucalyptus Globulus) and all of our neighbors have indicated that absolutely nothing grows under these trees. Sounds like a challenge
