WELCOME TO HORIZON FARM TRUST

Learn more about us…

Horizon Farm is a residential special needs home for intellectually impaired / disabled adults in KwaZulu-Natal. The home was born out of a dream in 1994 by a group of parents of mentally and physically disabled dependents who set out to provide a home-away-from-home for their lifetime needs and respite care. Horizon consists of a happy and safe outdoor environment and caters for special needs adults with typical  challenges relating to Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and Williams.

Vetiver grass is miracle environmentally sustainable solution for soil erosion

The major benefits lie with the roots which consists of a complex fibrous system and can grow up to 2 metres below ground, above ground it looks like a normal tall lush grass which can be trimmed down to 200mm.

The grass, although not indigenous, is not invasive as it is infertile and therefore stays where it is planted.

For more information on vetiver grass, and sales of the grass please visit our website www.horizonfarmtrust.org.za
