Green Futures is a college situated on the Grootbos Nature Reserve near Gansbaai in the Western Cape. It provides annual, practical-based learnerships for unemployed people from the local community in the fields of Fynbos landscaping, horticulture, life skills and ecotourism. The aim of the college is to promote nature-based sustainable livelihoods through training and skills development in these fields.

The college funds its activities through the sale of indigenous plants and the provision of landscaping services, which are reinvested into the Green Futures Foundation, which is a non-profit organisation. The college has a nursery that specialises in indigenous plants (especially Fynbos), indigenous landscaping and restoration
