A true Garden of Eden unfolds as highlight on the Garden Route

A secret place along the Garden Route with a message ready to be shared with the world. Somewhere far South in Africa there's a spectacular region called Garden Route! A sunny north-facing Garden Patch located on a corner-hilltop property in Plettenberg Bay with unbeatable bay views is being transformed into a true permaculture Food Garden during Covid.

The hidden gem is called La Food Forest as part of a 4 Star Lodge named La Vista Lodge. The very popular accommodation was impacted by the pandemic and is located in Eden District. Gardening became the new passion.

We initially started the 7 year Food Garden of Eden project in September 2019 (!) to reduce plastic consumption and grow more herbs. With Lockdowns planting and soil building made even more sense. We are now growing food for you true permaculture style in epic Plett Weather - A climate perfect for a self stable biodiverse beautiful food forest!
