Flower Valley showcased in new TMF book

Flower Valley Conservation Trust features in a new book detailing the activities of the tmf4Table Mountain Fund (TMF) over the last 20 years. The TMF has been a supporter and donor of the Trust and the Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative (ABI) in the past.

The book celebrates the TMF’s history and conservation projects across the Cape Floristic Region. The TMF, which officially launched in 1993, has supported over 150 conservation-related projects, to the value of some R100-milllion.

Projects supported range from scientific research to conservation initiatives that help local people derive a sustainable living from the biodiversity, such as fynbos (as is the case with Flower Valley). The book was written by well-known conservation journalist John Yeld.

Flower Valley is proud to be a part of the book, having played (and continuing to play) a key role in fynbos conservation and social upliftment.

Your own Erica ID kit:

There are around 660 Erica species in the Cape Floral Kingdom. On Flower Valley Farm, we’ve got 19 Erica species. (Most notably, you’ll find the Endangered Erica irregularis.) We’ve compiled an Erica ID kit of the main Erica species you’ll find in our area. And we’re making this kit available to those who have Adopted a Hectare on Flower Valley Farm.
