 An ecological demonstration site incorporating solar power, water catchment tanks and natural resource usage

The property of Mthimkhulu is being developed to be ecologically sustainable, according to the needs and expectations of all stakeholders while encouraging community participation, developing commercial activities to generate an income for the Estate and Programmes and ensuring a safe learning environment

Various technologies and alternative materials are used at the Village to show case ecological sustainability. Partnerships have been formed with Department of Science and Technology and CSIR to build five building, two of which will utilize alternative materials. Solar power, water catchment tanks and a proactive policy of recycling have been implemented. A borehole was recently installed by the Eskom Development Foundation.
