Established in 2012, this well-known 0.25ha community food garden on a heritage site on the slopes of Table Mountain is the most widely recognised project of the SAUFF Trust to date. OZCF runs a broad range of educational programmes for all ages and interests from workshops to internships, mentoring to hands-on-learning-by-doing with school groups. It is also a site for innovation, developing volunteer programmes, produce box schemes, allotment rentals, household food waste composting, raised bed design and cultivation methods, food forestry, community events and water-wise gardening practices that are shared and utilised at other suitable sites and projects. The OZCF Market was also established as part of the growth of the Oranjezicht City Farm, and since December 2017 has operated as an independent legal entity.
OZCF has over 60 000 followers on social media, has published two books, benefits from over 10 000 hours per annum in volunteer time, and is recognised as a leading voice in the urban farming movement in South Africa. The lessons learned and insights from establishing OZCF have informed the direction of the SAUFF Trust and given life to the further projects it has undertaken.
