Sandveld Organics is an organic farm in Lambert’s Bay on the West Coast of South Africa. They’re a supplier of certified organic seeds that are open pollinated. This means that you can save your own seeds to grow more plants with most of the qualities of the parent plant.
The Sandveld Organics founders, Theunis and Susi Engelbrecht, are pioneers in organic agriculture on the West Coast. Sharing their knowledge and experience, they started assisting a group of less privileged women from the fishing community in Lamberts Bay, struggling with their vegetable garden. Together with the support of several State Departments, this initiative has developed into a structures support programme to help emerging farmers.
Grow your own rocket by sowing your Sandveld Organics organic seeds from February to December. Rocket performs well when grown with beetroot, carrots, peas and salads. Does not grow well with cabbages and cucumbers.
