For thousands of years, the indigenous peoples of southern Africa survived in the veld. Throughout the seasons, they were skilled in recognising and using the various parts of wild plants – bulbs, shoots, flowers and fruit – as food. Botanist Ernst van Jaarsveld shares his wealth of experience of South Africa’s indigenous plants while we walk through the garden, picking and tasting food plants in season. Learn how to recognise edible veld plants as well as how to propagate and plant them. Get ready to tuck your hands in the soil and plant your own edible plants to take home.
Our lunch menu is inspired by the indigenous food plants we learn about and will be served at the Bakery – included in the price.
