Flower Power

On the weekend of September 25th 2014 six students from the Grootbos Foundation’s ‘Green Futures’ programme visited the Fernkloof Flower Show, held at the Fernkloof Nature Reserve in Hermanus. Led by the Head of Green Futures and the Nursery & Horticulture Manager, Susan Lochner and Sharlene de Villiers, respectively, the students enjoyed a full morning walking through the festival grounds and looking at the many flowers on display. This year’s festival had a strong focus on herbariums and proper methods for the preservation of plants, which Susan spoke about to the students throughout their visit. This excursion was followed by lunch in Hermanus.
