chillinout

In our world of excess technological immersion, it is wonderful to find places where one can take children to truly reconnect with nature. Owners of ‘Chillin Out’, Ingrid and Ivor Dickson, have created a genuine farm experience which is delightful in its simplicity.

tortoisee
Sedgefield residents may be considered a little loopy about tortoises. There is good reason for this. These hard-shelled reptiles are so prolific in these parts that they have managed to achieve somewhat of an iconic status. They have come to symbolise the town’s ‘Slow Town’ pledge of a wholesome and relaxed lifestyle.

historicwood
South Africans celebrate Heritage Month in September annually. Heritage Day, 24 September is so important that the government has declared this day as is a public holiday. This day is dedicated to all things proudly South African.

 treee

September is Arbor Month, a South African campaign to raise awareness and promote a better understanding of trees. The public are encouraged to plant trees and take part in a number of greening activities within their communities.

SEPTEMBER IS ARBOR MONTH

TORTOISES' HERALD THE ARRIVAL OF SPRING

 

Tortoises’ herald the arrival of Spring.
Sedgefield residents may be considered a little loopy about tortoises. There is good reason for this. These hard-shelled reptiles are so prolific in these parts that they have managed to achieve somewhat of an iconic status. They have come to symbolise the town’s ‘Slow Town’ pledge of a wholesome and relaxed lifestyle. Dotted around this pretty coastal village are several delightful mosaic sculptures depicting these much-loved creatures.

The story of Ross Taylor's strength and will to beat both a Great White shark attack AND a rare nerve cancer has become legend. The Great White sustained severe eye injuries from Ross's thumb, causing it to let go of his leg before he was rescued, and the cancer tumours were maltreated for several years, but did not stop Ross from making his amazing journey around the world before peacefully passing away at home in Knysna with his family in 2010 at the age of 29.
