Join this initiative from Evergreen Parenting and have a positive impact on your church community.

Evergreen Parenting would like to partner with churches in South Africa through the Evergreen@Church Initiative.

Hettie Brittz is well known for her book Kweek Kinders met Karakter (2007, Carpe Diem Media), as well as Growing Kids with Character (2018, David C Cook) that shows ways to let children excel at being who they naturally are. Her famous tree metaphors caused parents, teachers and youth workers all over the world to refer to children as Palm trees, Pine trees, Rose bushes or Boxwoods to indicate their personality type – recognizing a child’s strongest characteristics and applying that knowledge to everyday life.

Her views on respect, trust and healthy authority have had an influence on many homes and classrooms over the years.

In addition, her practical principles of discipline with compassion transformed how children are trained and equipped for adulthood.

Hettie Brittz developed video-based programmes to cover the content of her books.

In 2022 we launched the video-based program known as “The Parenting Garden.” There are three courses – one for each childhood phase:


on babies and toddlers up to 5 years of age


on children in the primary school phase


on teenagers in the high school phase.

The Evergreen@Church Initiative will enable churches and congregations to utilise Evergreen’s online content on Christian parenting as part of their ministry to parents.


The aim: to uplift and empower! Apart from the obvious benefit of equipped parents and a church that supports them, we would like to add the following possible benefits:
