Experience the Spring Splendour of Tokara Farm’s Private Garden at Garden Town Stellenbosch
Delight in the resplendent beauty of Tokara Farm’s private garden, showcased exclusively during Garden Town Stellenbosch’s spring festivities, from 27 October to 5 November 2023. Immerse yourself in the vibrant blooms and lush greenery on a self-guided tour through this hidden oasis.
A mosaic of indigenous flora, the enchanting Adamastor Moss Garden, and the majestic cork oak forest are yours to explore. Wander along serene paths dotted with sculptures crafted by local talents, each piece harmoniously melding with nature’s tapestry.
Don’t miss the wetlands, the eco-conscious vegetable patch, and the babbling mountain stream, which culminates in tranquil lily ponds, all while the intoxicating fragrances of spring surround you.
The Adamastor Moss Garden, a recent addition to Tokara, is a testament to the beauty of integration and harmony. Crafted by moss artist Gert van Tonder using local sandstone, granite, and indigenous mosses, it is a sublime sanctuary that echoes the Zen gardens of Japan yet is still distinctly Tokara.
The garden is a testament to the vision and passion of GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira, who founded Tokara over two decades ago. Their commitment to culture is clear in the abundance of art, seamlessly integrated into the property. Anne-Marie, a patron of emerging local artists, has curated a space where art and winemaking intertwine.
