Fynbos Field Guide


The Field Guide for Wild Flower Harvesting is a guide aimed at fynbos harvesters and landowners. The guide provides information on fynbos, the threats to fynbos and the need to harvest responsibly. It also describes 41 fynbos species picked on the Agulhas Plain for the market. The Field Guide was produced in partnership with the Universities of Durham and Newcastle, through the Newcastle University’s Economic and Social Research Council Impact Acceleration Scheme. The guide was also published through support from the European Union and the WWF Nedbank Green Trust.

The Field Guide is available in three languages: English, Afrikaans and Xhosa.
