Two inspirational eco-warriors visit with Helderberg Hospice

Bruce Kaiser and Kelly Steenhuisen, aka ‘the off-grid pear’, have been travelling around South Africa for more than 5 months, working on permaculture farms and sharing knowledge, in a quest to one day live completely self sustainably. They are sponsored with 22 products, and Bruce’s beard is kept in fine condition by James Du Plessis from the ‘Hairy Eye Beard Care’ company. As part of their mission is to give back to the environment by planting 1 tree per tank of fuel they use in their travels, James very kindly donated a young yellow wood sapling for Bruce and Kelly to plant in our Garden of Remembrance. What a pleasure to meet such motivated and enthusiastic young people – thank you for your lovely visit and the best of luck with your endeavours!


Bruce Kaiser and Kelly Steenhuisen meet with Dudley Rowswell one of the Helderberg Hospice garden volunteers.
