Location The Haven Night Shelter, Wynberg
Description Michael Valentine is a trainer for Soil for Life who works in the Lavender Hill area of Cape Town. Michael was made homeless some years ago and went to stay in The Haven night shelter. It was there that he discovered his passion for organic gardening and looked after the shelter's vegetable patch (originally started by Soil for Life). He continues to work at The Haven and helps the homeless to develop skills in the garden. This provides them with vital job skills which empowers them to find work. He is seen here working on their worm farm.
