The Indigenous and Unusual Herb and Sculpture Garden Opens!

Yesterday, Sunday the 17th of October 2010, is art – in conjunction with Le Quartier Français – launched The Indigenous and Unusual Herb and Sculpture Garden.

The garden, designed by Sue Norman, showcases indigenous and unusual herbs personally selected by Margot Janse; and it now serves as a private herb pantry for use in the exceptional dishes created – by Margot and her team – in The Tasting Room and The Common Room restaurants.

The Indigenous and Unusual Herb Garden, not content with being just a garden, moonlights as an extraordinary Contemporary Sculpture Garden.

In true is art style only South African sculptors will be showcased in the Indigenous and Unusual Herb and Sculpture Garden. The sculptors, on show for the opening, are Angus Taylor and Guy du Toit. Angus will be showing his latest wood stick figures as well as a monumental female bronze and granite figure. While Guy is bound to entertain, and captivate imaginations, with his larger than life bronze dancing bunnies and flocks of birds all cast in bronze.
