About The Upcycled Garden at Eagle Hout Padstal

This extensive new garden reflects the ethos of the Eagle Hout/Thembani Integrated Projects.

Tons of compost is made on site by elderly workers. There is a burgeoning food forest (macadamias, figs, olives, citrus), a poultry house with its own lucerne patch, two 180m long borders (one for vegetables, the other for picking flowers) and a surreal circular garden with a 5metre yellow chair hovering over it. (The chair is a ‘calling-card’ from the on-site furniture factory.)

Planted with culinary and therapeutic botanicals, the circular garden is made of 8000 ‘eco-bricks’ (2litre cooldrink bottles crammed full of waste plastic) and serves as an inspiration for this ‘green’ construction method.

Entry Fee : R5.00

Teas, lunches, gifts and plants for sale throughout the year

A guided tour of the Green Barn (an industrial shed converted into an easy-to-live in barn) is available on request.
