The next meeting of the Club will take place on the 1st November 2019, we will be visiting DP Ferreira and Hannes Stander’s lovely property in Bibby’s Hoek, Rheenendal under the name of “Woodcutters Forest Cottages”.
Ecozest is a floral and garden design studio based in the Garden Route of South Africa where DP and Hannes create beautiful and thought provoking floral design for weddings, corporate events and other celebrations. Hannes is a landscape architect with a passion for plants and design, his gardens are beautiful, embracing a sense of place and biodiversity
Come and experience the amazing job Hannes and DP have done by creating two very comfortable and stylish cottages on the edge of the Knysna forest. These two exceptionally knowledgeable and creative men and their zest for life, eco-mindedness and creative spirits abound across the entire property. The Club will be supplying soft drinks and eats but members must bring a mug and a folding chair.
Guests are welcome to attend at a cost of R20 each. The topic is “Gardening for the Vase”.
How to get there: Follow the instructions below:
From Knysna take the Rheenendal road off the N2, follow the road for 14km. You will pass Portland Mini Market halfway on your right, and a few kilometers further on Tottie’s Country Store on your left. Take the next right onto Bibby’s Hoek road – this will become a dirt road.
Follow this dirt road for 1.5km until you get to a boom for Goudveld – turn right there and follow the dirt road over 4 hills until you get to the end of the road. Their property is the last property on the left hand side, with a small gate and a sign reading “Woodcutters Forest Cottages”
We will have our signs in place to make it easier for you!
