BUSINESS MENTORSHIP AND NPO ADVISORY
Management is involved in business mentorship at various levels. 15% of management time is allocated to pro bono non-profit organisation (NPO) advisory roles. Most notably, our CEO is the Chairman of the City Improvement District which has created 623 jobs since its inception, including 300 for formerly homeless people.
Redevelopment projects often involve stripping carpets, lighting, sanitaryware, and M&E items. All items are carefully removed and donated to creches and other deserving social organizations.
We recently donated carpets, doors, and bathroom equipment to a community project run by Inspire Network who are refurbishing an old supermarket into a community hall for youth and educational services in Elsies River.
SUPPORTING LOCAL ARTISTS
Boxwood Property Fund also employs local artists to work on our property portfolio which consists of projects ranging from multi-story murals to quirky art installations.
In addition, we have held several competitions for local interior design students to integrate them into their profession and give them exposure to real-life projects.

Roots And Leaves
Dewald and his Wife came up with a concept of growing micro-greens in a green house. We were very happy to partner with Dewald and his team and provided the first roof top space which is situated on the roof of our Nedbank building, 50 Loop Street, Cape Town.
Dewald who is an engineer by trade and with his drive to problem-solve resulted in an idea to utilize the free space, power of the sun and rain water to create a sustainable, hyper-local urban farm which they called Roots And Leaves.
Roots And Leaves focus mainly on growing micro-greens, growing up to 300kg of produce a month and is managed by a team of two.
They now supply premium micro-greens to Cape Town's top restaurants, farmers markets, caterers and health food communities.
