In response to the Western Cape’s water crisis, the theme of this year’s Hermanus Flower Festival is Watching Water. Hosted by the Hermanus Botanical Society from 21 to 24 September 2018, the exhibition covers water-saving topics on a macro level (such as removing alien vegetation that depletes it), and also within our homes, with talks about water-wise gardening and installing domestic grey-water systems.
In addition to a wonderful display of fynbos arrangements, and local floral specimens in the hall, the Hermanus Photographic Society will be showcasing an array of striking images.
Outside in the marquee, enthusiasts will be able to participate in local-interest group discussions, and listen to presentations about foraging, growing your own herbs, and making a Tussie Mussie (small bouquet).
In addition to the Fynbos Café – which will be serving scrumptious teas and lunches – there’ll be a selection of craft and food stalls to browse, while the kids will be kept busy at the Upcycling Craft Corner.
