Prince Albert Chronicles – September October 2023
The inaugural Prince Albert Open Gardens 30 September and 1 October was a wonderful success with many visitors already booking their space for PAOG 2024.
Over 12 unique Karoo gardens were open to the public, along with talks and interactive workshops hosted by garden design guru, Franchesca Watson, Karoo plant ecologist, Prof. Sue Dean, and expert foodscaper, Sue Torrance.
Garden enthusiasts, diarise 28 and 29 September 2024 for next year’s event.
A beautiful Karoo October morning saw off the Prince George 100 Miler participants as they sweated it out all the way to the more humid climes of George. Thank you to all the cyclists, supporters, and organisers for supporting our town, see you again next year.
Thank you, Nik Rabinowitz, for the side-splitting hilarity at Gay’s Dairy Barn. Although it was a cold night, the audience laughed themselves warm, also completely warming was that all proceeds were donated to PACT.
Looking for a special piece of the Karoo to wear as a trendy accessory? Look no further than Di van der Riet Steyn Jewelry. In a dorp rich in history, Di often walks nose down in the veld searching for that piece, bits of Karoo blue, green and red, that make one wonder who used that piece of crockery 150 years ago.
Shards of someone else’s precious plate or cup, wrapped in pure silver and then transformed into wearable art many decades later.
