Horticulturist supremo Keith Kirsten designed Cavalli’ Estate’s resplendent indigenous gardens in 2013 and continues to keep a watchful eye on the estate’s extraordinary landscape. Now, Cavalli Estate and Kirsten invite you to wander down the garden paths of this pristine and jaw-dropping estate with the man himself on Saturday, 2 November 2019.

For passionate gardeners around the Cape, it’s a fabulous opportunity to get to know more about Kirsten who has an infectious passion for water-wise gardening, the environment and fauna.

The day begins at 11h30 with the garden tour followed by a 6-course spring-inspired luncheon by Chef Michael Deg of Cavalli Restaurant.

For the fine art enthusiast within the audience, be sure to pay a visit to the Cavalli Art Gallery afterwards. The gallery has collaborated with respected local Cape Town-based artist Rodan Kane Hart to solo exhibit “BORDERLESS”. Predominantly known for his sculptural pieces, Rodan’s body of work is a multidisciplinary one spanning drawing, installation and performance – an approach based on his belief that the intention of an artwork should be supported by the chosen artistic medium.
