Our Story

Earth Forest started as a dream, an idea in the minds and hearts of Evert and Caroline. A cafe and whole food health store that resonates in harmony with nature… As I sit and write this at our pioneer branch in Stirling, East London, South Africa a bee flies in and hovers over the counter.

When Caroline and Evert first met they would spend hours upon hours just chatting away about how they would run the first Earth Forest stores, they both wanted to use as much whole food and plant-based ingredients as possible, how they would package the products in recycled glass, designing the stores to look and feel like being in a forest, on and on they went.

The vision was to create stores that supported and flowed in harmony with nature, stores that created zero waste, that recycled and reused their packaging and most importantly stores that had an abundance of food growing in and around the shop.
