Sustainable Gardening – talk by Keith Kirsten

We’re very excited to share that Keith Kirsten, one of South Africa’s most famous horticulturalists, will give a talk at the Environmental Education Centre at the Garden Route Botanical Garden on 27 July.

The focus of his talk will be on Sustainable Gardening – a topic that is sure to interest the many avid gardeners of the Garden Route! For more than 30 years, his charisma and charm have encouraged and motivated South Africans to love their gardens. Keith regularly visits notable gardens both locally and abroad, and is well–versed in the latest trends in landscaping and garden design. He has co-sponsored the award-winning SANBI Kirstenbosch South African Exhibit at Chelsea for more than 20 years and he is currently Chairman of the Kirstenbosch Branch of The Botanical Society of South Africa.

All funds raised will be donated by The Garden Route Branch to the Garden Route Botanical Garden for a new thematic display featuring some of the unique plants found in coastal dune strandveld/calcrete areas found in the Garden Route.

Tickets are on sale to the public for R50 each – please email paulinecloete@gmail.com to book before Wednesday, 24 July.
