A valuable contribution to the Omaruru Children’s Haven’s educational concept as well as a healthy addition to our kitchen is our green house and the hen house.

Especially for the children coming to the Omaruru Children’s Haven from an uneducated background without having had fixed duties and responsibilities in the past, green house and hen house offer a possibility to experience for the first time that the regular carrying out of a duty in the truest sense of the word bears fruit. Due to this the children carry out their duties with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Oftentimes the housemothers have to slow the children down, because they want to sow again even though the old crop has not even been harvested yet.

And it is self-evident that you cannot eat anything healthier than fruits and vegetables grown without pesticides and fertilizer in your own garden.
