Experience Tokara in all its natural splendour when this Stellenbosch estate, renowned for its wine and olives, opens its extensive private gardens to the public for the annual Rare Plant Fair and Open Garden on Saturday, 23 April 2022.
Stroll through tranquil walkways dotted with sculptures by local artists while taking in the magnificent vistas over the garden dam. The dedicated indigenous garden, textures in the cork oak forest and the fresh scents wafting from the terraces of the picking garden will appeal to all the senses. Enchanting secrets worth discovering are the fruit orchard, wetlands and the gurgling mountain stream flowing into soothing lily ponds.
The latest addition to the farm’s inspiring collection of natural marvels is a Moss Garden created by neuroscientist and international moss gardener Gert van Tonder. The garden is 100% local with all rocks and moss originating within a few kilometres from the space that is being transformed into something that belongs at Tokara as much as it does in Japan.
The wide variety of plants on sale from indigenous flora such as fynbos and proteas to the more exotic, this popular event will appeal to all tastes. Besides coffee and other refreshments, Tokara wines and extra virgin olive oils will be available. Delicious!
The Tokara Rare Plant Fair and Autumn Open Garden 2022 is open from 8 am until 4 pm. Entry for adults is R50 in aid of a local charity. Children aged under 10 have free entry. The Tokara Tasting Lounge, Restaurant and Delicatessen will be open as usual on Saturday.
