LOCATION: Coenradenburg, West Coast
LEADER: Kathy Dumbrell
We are delighted that the Smit family have agreed to allow us to visit this historic farm this month.
Coenradenburg is a wonderful example of a Cape vernacular farm werf and retains the character that it must have had a century ago. It has remained in the hands of the same family for many generations.
The Vernacs were intimately involved in recording Coenradenburg in 1975.
The fynbosfees in Hopefield takes place on the same weekend, so although the official outing will be to Coenradenberg, and members can extend their visit to the area to take in whatever else is part of the show (see http://showme.co.za/events-entertainment/hopefield-fynbos-show/ http://www.sa-venues.com/events/westerncape/hopefield-fynbos-show/ http://capewestcoastpeninsula.co.za/hopefield/ )
