The Cape Horticultural Society encourages experienced and amateur gardeners to meet like-minded people who want to share knowledge, and to promote biodiversity, where plants flourish and the balance of nature exists.

Monthly Meeting


Our next meeting will be on 6 November 2023.


Lousie Nurrish would like to share with you about the project, Living Roots, which she now manages. This is a social enterprise of UTurn Homeless Ministries.

As the title suggests, Living Roots restores lives by training and equips formerly homeless clients with a range of horticulture skills and restores landscapes by growing, selling and planting locally indigenous plant species.
