Friends of Eden

We’re so excited about introducing you to some of the locally-grown projects & partners we work with as part of the Eden Community Initiative.

Forest Glen

Backpackers vibe not really your style? No problem. Our friends at Forest Glen offer affordable B&B accommodation, tucked away in the foresty suburb of Hunters Home, if you’re looking for a more luxurious and serene place to rest your head.

Novel Creations

Novel, our friendly neighbour, is a shabby-chic company that produces local, hand-crafted, proudly South-African products out of wire, beads, recycled and natural materials.

Famous for its chandeliers, lamps and statement piece décor- Novel turns almost any material into an artistically crafted wonder, perfect for any space.

Eden Recycling & Energy Management

EREM, based at the old Khulani Waste in the industrial area, is part of our development goal to shift towards a low-carbon, greener economy. We are working towards creating more jobs in the community through a creative waste collection and recycling system running from the household to the regional scale. Our ultimate goal is to build a Garden Route that’s truly green, with zero waste.


Outeniqua Bicycles

Outeniqua Bicycles is an incredibly innovative project run by local craftsmen at Kluyts MakerSpace who have come together to build a series of edgy, functional, custom-made wooden bicycles.
