Overview
More
The Oranjezicht City Farm (OZCF) is an educational non-profit project celebrating local food, culture and community through urban farming in Cape Town. Located on a small remnant of the site of an historic farm dating to 1709 with a perennial freshwater spring that has drawn people for many thousands of years, OZCF seeks to re-connect the Oranjezicht neighbourhood and the rest of Cape Town to this neglected piece of heritage through education, gardening activity and outreach, and to use it as a catalyst to build social cohesion across communities, to develop skills among the unemployed, to educate residents and their children and others about food, environmental and related issues, to beautify public space and to champion unused or under-utilised green spaces in the City Bowl. Volunteers and visitors are welcome Monday - Saturday and tours are available by request in advance. Saturdays from 9am-2pm OZCF also operates a community farmer's market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers at another site in Granger Bay at the V&A Waterfront. At the OZCF Market customers can do weekly food shopping (veg, fruit, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli, etc), try out some delicious cooked and raw foods and be inspired about helping to build an alternative food system. Additionally, customers can buy edible plants and seedlings, compost and gardening supplies and equipment. Market traders make every effort to create links between the OZCF, history/tradition and a sense of place, through labelling, using seasonal produce, etc. Educational talks and events are linked to the market and there are plenty of activities for kids such as story telling, planting, craft, yoga and more.

Great food, views, friendly locals and cheap! A must! We ate these pies, which the vendors claimed were the best in the world, and they certainly weren't joking.

Every day at noon a cannon Is fired on top of Signal Hill. Originally as a warning to approaching ships that a ship was in trouble,, now just a curious tradition. One category hear it throughout Cape Town.
