This initiative supported individuals in starting up a green business idea or project. Over fourteen successful micro grant projects were supported. These projects have given rise to new champions in the area; men and women who are motivated and driven to not only help in the development of their communities but also care and nurture their environment and nature. This is one of the first projects of its kind being piloted in the Baviaanskloof landscape and the process has been one of valuable learning, with many lessons learnt and new experiences gained. Living Lands managed the project and funding was provided by the Table Mountain Fund.
