Supporting the Local Community
The Thornybush Community Project is a non-profit organisation with the objective of nurturing and uplifting the local community. The group currently supports a primary school and high school, assist an agricultural business that supplies surrounding lodges and shops with fresh produce, and supports a local NGO that focuses on medical care for farm workers and child support for their kids. All proceeds that are made from within the projects are re-invested back into the development of these projects.
