Greenhouse


The F & G National Trust was set up to help support and grow the micro farming movement in South Africa i.e. teaching people how to grow their own food organically so that they can feed themselves with healthy nutritional food and sell their produce. www.farmgardentrust.org

“The Greenhouse workshops are a powerful process tool to enable realization of projects and campaigns. I was privileged to participate in a number of mini-workshops over more than a year with the Greenhouse Team.  As a result the Trust gained a set of effective tools, as well as significant exposure,  during a successful pilot campaign in 2009.  We thus continue to work with Greenhouse in our next campaign phase/s and here too, their workshop process is proving invaluable to develop strategic certainty and maintain focused actions which are highly likely to succeed. Viva Greenhouse Viva!”
- Rob Small (Founder of Farm & Garden National Trust and Ashoka Fellow)

PACE is a Carbon Trading and Consultancy company. They develop social projects to create carbon credits. www.carbon.org.za

“PACE had been operating five years when we went through a branding and positioning exercise with Greenhouse. Unknowingly we had become comfortable in what we were doing, and had lost focus in trying to answer too many requests.
Sitting in a relaxed and creative workshop environment while answering a series prying questions helped us redefine what we were as a company, and what we ought to be doing.  Talking through our “values”, “essence” “personality” – not words we had used to describe our work previously – reminded us of why had started the business and gave us a new vision, not to mention a new logo and branding. The exercise has proven most useful when recruiting new staff. Understanding more about who we are and how we operate makes it much easier to identify the types of people who will add value to our business.”

- Anton Cartwright (Founder, The PACE Centre)

"My session with Juliet and Justin from Greenhouse was deep, intense, powerful and detailed - consideration of the highest order! Through the process we engaged (which was simultaneously very free in its exploration as well as being precisely guided within our agreed format), a richer, clearer and more refined vision of what my company is altogether about was articulated. Justin and Juliet are an excellent synergistic team and were able to elicit, more thoroughly than I could on my own, the deeper structure and purpose of the business. The process itself, and the document produced from that process, has been useful for me as my own conceptual road map to maintain alignment, and also for key stakeholders, such as employees, shareholders and other associates, to be clearly informed of the bigger, and more finely detailed, picture. Very useful altogether and highly recommended!"
- Jean-Pierre Le Roux (CEO and Alchemical Director of Soma Whole Life Elements)

“Consulting with Greenhouse is one of the best things we have done for our business and our brand. At first we were uncertain as to what we would tangibly take away from these workshops, but with the help of the GH team we have gotten more clarity, direction and brand focus. Our original brand has become consolidated and tight and our new infant brand has been neatened up, primed and is ready to go. As a result of the clarity gleaned from these workshops our business has taken on a new flow and is going from strength to strength, the flow is incredible to witness. Having our vision, missions and goals brainstormed, refined and written up for us in a document that can be referred back to has meant that the mind is clear to focus on new projects and developments.”
- Beryn Daniels (Co-founder, Soaring Free)
