Kippy and Ingie moved to Strathneva 15 years ago and Ingie started establishing this beautiful farm garden with its sweeping lawns and colourful beds. She set out to frame the stunning East Griqualand views from the farmhouse veranda and has concentrated on colour combinations in the expansive flowerbeds. Ingie has also established an indigenous area on the northern aspect. Kippy has cleared a natural “grotto” area next to the garden which can be accessed by steep rustic steps (However, this is not for the infirm nor faint-hearted!).

Tea, Coffee and a selection of savoury and sweet eats available all day throughout the weekend.

Dr John Wyatt will be playing on and off during the weekend.  And Jacques Heyns will be entertaining us with a few melodies on Sunday. 

The novel ‘Machpersons Elephant’ by Edward Ostrigoshy will be launched with book signing on Saturday. Edward founded the Tembe Elephant Park and the novel is based on his experiences. 

Ingrid will have a collection of good art from local artists and elsewhere that she will display in the room off the veranda.

Directions: Take the Cedarville/Matatiele road. 7.5km from Kokstad turn left onto the D606 (the first district road). After approximately 2 km take the first turn left. The garden is approximately 1km on the left.
