Hlokomela Herb Banquet

Hlokomela Herb Banquet
The Hlokomela Herb Banquet is held every year at the beginning of September and involves support and participation from various lodges in the region who prepare and present a range of foods made using herbs produced by Hlokomela in their Herb Garden. The Hlokomela Herb Garden produces a wide range of herbs and vegetables produced in the community gardens to feed into the Food Bank as well as to help sustain Hlokomela financially through their sales to lodges and major retail outlets in the region. All meals produced during the banquet have to contain herbs obtained from the Hlokomela Gardens

Established in 2005, the Hlokomela Programme coordinates various health and educational development initiatives for 72 local agricultural and tourism businesses associated with the Hoedspruit Training Trust, a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to empower commercial farm workers and their families with a greater sense of responsibility for their personal health, spiritual, and educational development.

The Banquet is held in a scenic location at Thornybush Game Reserve.
