Company’s Garden landscaping and trees
March 17, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmR400
Clare Burgess’ highly enjoyable and informative walk is back by popular demand.
Cape Town’s central green lung is full of a variety of trees, stories and landscaping design styles. Some of the plants date back hundreds of years, others have recently been planted.
Initially a farm created and maintained by enslaved labour in the 17th century, Company’s Garden is now surrounded by major South African institutions and is used by many Capetonians to get to and from work or school.
Clare worked at the City for nine years and designed some of the areas. She now has her own awarding landscape architecture practice.
Clare is an active local champion of the value of trees, especially in the urban environment; she is the co-founder and chair of TreeKeepers Cape Town.
As a lecturer at both the University of Cape Town and Cape Peninsula University of Technology, she brought her students to the Garden.
I will cover briefly history and sculpture in the Garden.
Cost per person: R400 or R300 if paying before March; free for full time landscape students and long term unemployed
