For the kids there will be pony rides, facepainting, claywork, a jumping castle and a playground.

Musical talents entertaining us through the day will be Amy Tjasink followed by Greer Bell and Zaria. Lucky us, because they have voices from heaven!!!

A free Guided Fynbos Walk will be led at 11am and a talk on Small Fynbos Gardens will be happening at 1pm.

And of course….last but definitely not least – ALL the plants in the ENTIRE retail area will be on sale at less 20% on the marked price…. with many extra specials here and there.
