Kathryn Eybers, who co-owns Numbi Valley Permaculture Farm near Oudtshoorn with her husband, Ross, shares her Green Karoo Route.
We love to visit Brett the Vet‘s Tortoiseback Vegan Haven just outside the tiny Karoo town of Klaarstroom. Brett opens his farm stall once a week on a Friday morning 9am-12 and sells freshly picked organic heirloom veggies and exquisite flowers.
Wellbeing is a health food and beautiful Indian clothing store in the main street of Oudtshoorn. But the main reason we visit them regularly is that the roast their own peanuts and press freshly ground nuts into the jar you brought with you from home….there is NO other peanut butter as delicious. We also buy our eco friendly cleaning products and toiletries from them and stock up on pulses.
Numbi Valley Yoga studio: the most beautiful place to practise, daily classes are offered in the cob studio with magnificent views across the Olifants river valley and Swartberg range. A time to stretch, build strength, feel alive and thrive.
Walking in the Karoo hills and mountains. There are beautiful wild places to explore and such exquisite and interesting Karoo succulents.
On the first Saturday of the month the De Rust Country Market, I love supporting local!! There is good coffee, sweet treats, artisan breads, organic veggies, good second hand books and clothes, pannekoek to support the recycling project in town, local crafts and arts.
Kathryn: ‘A very proud pomegranate grower.’
