Indigenous Plant Fair with the Sustainable Living Exhibition at the Durban Exhibition Centre

Fri 15 September to Sunday 17 September 9am to 5pm

We will have a different kind of plant fair this year. Due to time constraints at the venue, we will not be able to stage our usual event in the car park at the DEC. But, for the first time inside the hall, we will have lots of indigenous plants for you to buy, and the weather will not affect us.

We will have selected nurseries manning their own stands under our banner, where they will sell directly to the public, with our assistance. Nurseries will donate a percentage of sales to the Botanical Society, so you are still supporting us with your purchases. You will find us inside the hall at the back, where we have convenient access to a parking area for loading your purchases.

Entry is free, and parking is free at the Centrum parking, access over the pedestrian bridge.

All our volunteers, please contact Sandra if you have not heard from her yet – we will still need you!
