Business Information




Marshall and Ruwayda Rinquest are vegetarians and over the years found the availability of fresh organic produce, and related speciality products, to be limited and pricey.

Using excess vegetables and fruit grown in their home garden, and those of friends, the husband-and-wife team opened RAW in 2018 to provide the community with fresh affordable produce. Added to this much-needed service was their intensive knowledge of medicinal plants which plays an important role in maintaining a healthy diet.

Valley Food Gardens

Valley Food Gardens

Valley Food Gardens is a non-profit agricultural initiative created by Greyton Transition Town (GTT) to uplift the communities of Genadendal, Bereavill, Voorstekraal, Boesmanskloof and Greyton. 

By unlocking the community’s food-growing potential, Valley Food Gardens assists its members every step of the way with the education and resources needed to establish healthy, self-sustaining, vegetable gardens. This resourcefulness directly influences economic access to food, reduces family food bills, enables more diverse diets, boosts immune systems and provides growers with a potential source of income. Valley Food Gardens buys surplus vegetables from growers' which get packed into veggie boxes and sold to the public at RAW, a local wholefood store, and at weekly community markets.
