'Common Sense Sustainability is Fun!' is Frank Edwards' motto, and Frank (of Tropical Nursery fame) has had great fun turning his own property and adjacent servitude into a demonstration food and indigenous forest using permaculture principles. An Earthship flatlet is built from mud from the property and using glass and plastic bottles. Frank will show us his water harvesting scheme, earthworm farming, hens Jane and Margaret in their chicken tractor, double-reach veggie and propagation beds, and tranquil natural pool. Frank's humour and creativity add delightful touches to this unconventional garden. You will be inspired to try some of his ideas at your own home.
Frank will lead tours around the garden starting at 09:00 and 11:00 respectively (reserve tour 14:00). Booking and pre-payment are essential: BotSoc members R55; Non-members R65; children under 12: R35. Price includes tea and cake. Proceeds to BotSoc branch projects.
Numbers are limited to 20 people per tour.
To book, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 031 - 201 5111 on Mondays and Thursdays 10:00 - 16:00 or cell 071 869 3693.
