Last year Hout Bay United Football Community (HBUFC) approached us with the novel idea of taking in ten of their young players as interns. Seeing as we are big fans of HBUFC and had a strong history of working together in food delivery during the pandemic, we couldn’t resist.
For the past five months these players worked half days with us, learning the art of growing veggies for the community. And we have enjoyed learning from them the spirit of team work, something HBUFC holds at the core of their values. We are excited to announce that as of this month, six of those interns have now moved into full time positions with us as Trainee Growers. For all of them, a rite of passage, as this is their first time to have an employment contract. And of course they’ll still squeeze in their practices and hard work in their other team, HBUFC.
Welcome to the Veggie Team, Nawaal, Griffin, Zukisani, Zandile, Zandisiwe, Relumetse we’re glad to you have you on our side. And we continue to wish you the very best as you pursue your future dreams on the football field.
