Make a Day of it – Book, Plant and Food Fair in aid of SARDA

A Book, Plant and Food Fair at Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery. Join us on Saturday the 17th of October 2015.

It's going to be a veritable feast for the mind, body and soul and we'd love you to spend the day with us - starts at 9:00am and ends at 4:00pm.

This day is a moment that is part of a larger story - October 2015 is our 25th Birthday month at the indigenous plant nursery.My life and that of Random Harvest are inextricably intertwined, and so in celebrating 25 years of this remarkable Farm and Nursery, I share three of my first loves with you - indigenous plants, books and good food.

Proceeds from the Day will be going to my nominated charity, South African Riding for the Disabled. What an amazing group of people and "equine therapists" (horses and ponies) that work together to bring healing, hope and joy to the lives of so many.

South African Indigenous Trees for Arbor Week 2015

I am constantly reminded of how lucky we are to live in this amazing country we call South Africa.  It is so rich in biodiversity and promise.

The indigenous trees, too, reflect this richness, and evoke the spirit of the place that their species originated from. For instance, when I look at the Acacia species, they are the quintessential African Savannah trees.

South Africa has some 1700 indigenous tree species, and each year 2 species are chosen as the tree of the year. This Arbor Week we tell you a bit more about the Trees of the Year for 2015.

They are the Forest Bushwillow (Combretum kraussii) and the Parsley Tree (Heteromorpha arborescens).

Trees for Pools

I am regularly asked to recommend trees for around a swimming pool. Most people ask  for an evergreen tree.

I would like to make an argument for deciduous trees. Remember that although trees may be evergreen they do drop the old leaves and grow new ones and this is an ongoing process throughout the year, while a deciduous tree drops all its leaves in a short space of time.
