Garden Club News

- Jeanette de Lange -

“It was like a three-dimensional painting; the only difference, it was instant!”- Ann Kerr

The July meeting of the Prince Albert Garden Club was held on a sunny, warm winter’s afternoon on the patio of African Relish, the new recreational cooking school on Church Street.
African Relish’s Jeremy Freemantle welcomed the twenty-five Club members and guests to the school and told them of his and his partner’s dreams and plans for the school. African Relish, he said, is part of a vision, not only for the developers but also for Prince Albert.

Ons hoofspreker vir die middag – Ann Kerr – dit is ook haar openingswoorde wat aangehaal is. Ann wat sonder ophou sê sy is nie `n tuinboukundige, `n landskapontwerper . MAAR – Ann is a true gardener, she works, speaks from the heart. Take a slow stroll through the garden – still very much in the process of unfolding. To see is to enjoy, to enjoy is to be part of a picture story slowly happening.

Jeremy and his team are creating a “stop-in-your-tracks-and-LOOK experience”. The building housing the kitchen and restaurant is a glossy magazine spread come to life. Top Billing and De Kat take note!

The next Garden Club meeting is an outing to the Leeu-Gamka Nursery and Farm Stall on 5 August. We will meet at the Fransie Pienaar Museum – cars will leave from there at 14h00. The Nursery will provide refreshments at a cost of R15 per person; please inform Dawn Viljoen (reachable at 023 5411 832) whether you plan to attend (for catering purposes) and whether you need transport. Please also be prepared possibly to contribute R20 towards petrol costs. As always, guests and friends are welcome to join us.
