About this Speaker
Xolisa considers himself a soil artist using the soil as the canvas and plants as paint to
create a beautiful image of his community. He grew in Site C, a community in Khayelitsha. He sees lack of opportunities and access to resources and information with regards to food and environmental practices as a major social ill we faced with. In 2013 Xolisa founded a community project called Ikhaya Garden to encourage young people to enjoy the adventure of gardening with a motto of making gardening cool.
