The Klein Karoo in the Western Cape is littered with little gems like Barrydale; where charm and character abound and the historical and natural appeal is undeniable. This town is perched along Route 62, and is surrounded by vineyards and fruit orchards, mountains and valleys; all of which combine to give it a very special appeal.
In October, the Barrydale in Bloom Open Gardens Safari takes place, promising visitors a memorable tour through the little villages of Barrydale and Smitsville. This annual event just becomes more and more popular as it continues to grow.
Our Bloom Project for this year is the Barrydale High School Garden (See Project 2020 in the menu for more details) arising out of the theme for this year's Bloom : "Food Gardens!"
as well as to support in spirt, the emergence of BarrydaleProjectVeg a community, online resource connecting and networking with gardeners in and around Barrydale
So whether you integrate your veggie's into your overall Garden scheme or you tend a seperate, and productive patch - we would like to see! Veggie Gardening forms part of an overall global locus and renewed interest amongst gardeners the world over in food security and the wise use of resources such as water and land.
