Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre - Lecture Class

Making the most out of small gardens

To provide students with a greater understanding of how the seedbank legacy connects to the bigger scheme of preserving seeds for future use as well as the importance of growing and sustaining our natural seeds.

The seedbank legacy at the Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre in De Wildt is a repository of 1 500 seeds representing South Africa’s indigenous food and medicinal plants. Our seed dream is to link people into growing their own seed dreams, with the aim to feed a nation.

Contact us for more information placing seed banks in schools, business, institutions, churches and anywhere there is a need for growth. Call 071 161-6441 / 082 457 1269 or email
