Waterwise and wonderful: learn to save precious resources in the garden and plant waterwise plants with our garden team.

R 1200 per person.

Only 20 places available

We all need to do our bit to help preserve our precious natural resources, but sometimes we can be stumped as to how. In our ever-popular waterwise workshop, top botanist Ernst van Jaarsveld will share his own tried-and-tested waterwise tips. We start with a stroll through Babylonstoren’s garden to learn more about the different mulches and waterwise plants used here. Once settled in the garden lecture room, Ernst will give an illustrated talk, during which you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions. Ernst will also guide you in propagating easy-to-grow waterwise plants from seeds and cuttings, which you can take home.

Steaming coffee from our Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Greenhouse Restaurant is included.
