South Africa won its 35th gold medal in 42 years of exhibiting at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in London. The display was also awarded the prestigious President’s Award. Every year it is re-created at Garden World, so if you haven’t seen this year’s Kirstenbosch South Africa Chelsea Exhibit designed by internationally recognised designers Ray Hudson and David Davidson, there is still time to see it at Garden World.

With its theme ‘Windows on Biodiversity’, the exhibit has gorgeous backdrops of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden. The plants on display represent all ten of South Africa’s National Botanical Gardens: Free State, Hantam, Harold Porter, Karoo Desert, Kirstenbosch, Kwelera, Lowveld, KwaZulu-Natal, Pretoria and Walter Sisulu.

This year it is being supported by Starke Ayres, and well worth a visit!

 

 
 

Garden World is on Beyers Naudé Drive in Muldersdrift.

Her parents were murdered, too — the father hacked to death with a machete. Before leaving, the half-dozen killers tied a note to the gate: “We killed them. We’re coming back.”

The Potgieter family massacre is just one of the tens of thousands of farm attacks to have plagued South Africa since 1994. Like little Willemien’s cross, many of those now-iconic emblems represent…

14 August 2012The following report is the result of an intensive personal inquiry in South Africa conducted July 23 -27, 2012. 

Deliberate inaction of the South African Government has weakened rural security structures, facilitating Afrikaner farm murders, in order to terrorize white farmers into vacating their farms, advancing the ANC/S. A. Communist Party’s New Democratic Revolution (NDR.)

So how may dead South African farmers does it take to ‘inspire’ South Africa’s ANC-government & the world to take action?

Such a simple question – it doesn’t require you to be a rocket scientist to understand this one line of the English language. However the world remains numb and it seems to remain a trick question!!!
