The Darling Wildflower Society is excited to share our newest project. The Village Garden
The Society will take on the maintenance and management of the public open space and vlei off the Main Road. The vlei itself is home to an array of endemic bulbs, indigenous grasses and sedges.
The project aims to establish an indigenous, water-wise garden with footpaths and rest areas for the entire community and visitors to enjoy as well as restore and maintain the seasonal vleiland as an example of the unique and endangered habitat.
The Society will maintain the garden once established and hopes to create opportunities for the entire community to become involved. Funding has been allocated towards the project by the Swartland Municipality. Thank you to Swartland Municipality for their ongoing support of the Society.
You might have noticed. . . our chairman, Charles Duckitt, and the reserve team kicked off the first phase of the project on 11 Feb. 2022 by removing weeds and litter from the open space. Drop in with a few cold drinks and have a chat with Charles about the project and how to become involved.
