Open Gardens 2018 – Willowdale – KZN
October 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Helen and Gordon Treweek and Letha
Helen and Gordon are both artistic, creative entrepreneurs. They have now developed Willowdale, their home farm, into a multifaceted venue. A casual garden, creatively designed, is home to a nursery, Khuphuka, which means ‘to rise’. Here, mostly indigenous plants are sold as an upliftment project for the staff, who are very proud of their achievements. Letha has taken charge of the whole garden and has shown potential as a landscaper, growing in knowledge of various plants.
Directions: Willowdale can be reached from two directions. Take the N2 from Kokstad to Pietermaritzburg and after 9km turn right at the Willowdale turn-off. Or, at the intersection of the Karg’s Post road and the N2, turn right, travel 1km up the hill and turn left at the Willowdale turn-off.
