Social Responsibility

At Creation we believe in doing business responsibly so that our environment, employees, clients, and our local community are impacted positively through our actions. One of the challenges facing the South African wine industry is how to enrich the lives of families in our agricultural communities.

At Creation, education and food security are priorities. In 2019, co-owner Carolyn Martin was honoured to be designated a Paul Harris Fellow by Rotary International in recognition of her sense of the needs of our community.

Growing minds

Education

Education is the key to unlocking opportunities and in recent years we have specifically focussed our social responsibility efforts on the establishment of educational facilities in our local community, where there were none before.

Creation’s involvement in the Hemel-en-Aarde Pebbles Education Project of which we are a founder member, dates back to 2017. The project includes the provision of Early Childhood Development (ECD) education, an After-School Care programme and transportation for children, thereby also providing peace of mind to working parents in the community.

The project currently supports 120 children aged 1 to 13. To read more about the Pebbles Project, kindly visit www.pebblesproject.co.za. Pebbles truly changes lives.

Planting for the future

Food Security

The Creation team is involved in two self-sustaining community gardens: the Franklin Ohana Sustainability Garden and the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Vegetable Garden.

The Franklin Ohana Sustainability Garden in the nearby town of Hawston is an all-inclusive, self-sustaining garden offering participating households the chance to grow their own food, thus contributing to food security.

We are also proud to have been involved in the establishment, and now the maintenance of the Pebbles Hemel-en-Aarde Vegetable Garden. The fresh produce is incorporated in the daily meals of the school children and also shared out among the Pebbles families and other community members.
