Indigenous trees workshop

  • R700 p.p.
  • 22 May 2019, 10:00 – 15:00
  • Presented by Ernst van Jaarsveld & the garden team
  • Please meet us at the Farm Shop

With over a thousand indigenous varieties, we celebrate the richness of South Africa’s trees. Come and spend the day with Ernst van Jaarsveld, looking at the diversity of trees in various Southern African environments such as the highveld, bushveld, subtropical coast, seafront Karoo, Namib and fynbos biome. Our trees vary from the African baobab with the widest girth of any tree in the world to the flat-topped acacia so typical of Africa.  Explore the cultivation of trees at Babylonstoren and engage in the conversation about their use in the garden, propagation methods from seed and cuttings, as well as pests and diseases.

Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.
