■ Celebrated South African chef, Bertus Basson, pictured right, is a Garden Day Flower Crown Ambassador, and hosted a Garden Day lunch in his Jamestown garden, on Sunday October 21, to raise money for the local animal rescue charity. His garden supplies vegetables to all his restaurants. “I love our vegetable garden, and using produce from our own garden has added a lovely dimension to our restaurants. Garden Day is the perfect opportunity to share our sanctuary with other people,” says Bertus. Pictured with Bertus is Joseph Kumbukeni, who tends to the abundant garden. Picture: Brenton Geach.
