Waterkloof goes wild with Circle of Life Biodynamic Walks and Nature lovers can now connect with life on a green farm, the natural way. For a different kind of walk on the wild side, Waterkloof Estate, the sustainable wine farm on the outskirts of Somerset West, invites nature lovers and eco enthusiasts to lace up for its new, monthly Circle of Life Biodynamic Walks and learn about its green philosophy, every step of the way.
More than just a typical ‘organic vine to organic wine’ experience, these hour long, guided walks unearths this biodynamic bastion’s way of life on the crest of the Schapenberg, where it works in harmony with nature to produce its pure, untamed wines of vitality.
“The concept of biodynamic and organic farming can be daunting, but with these edu-eco-walks, we show visitors how it is really done and explain the philosophy behind it all, whilst sharing with them our slice of precious Cape Floral Kingdom. Disconnected from their devices, they learn how working with nature allows one to experience its natural cycle each year. Our walks are inspired by this ongoing cycle that exists at Waterkloof,” explains Christiaan Loots, Waterkloof’s own green guru who personally conducts these walkabouts with zeal.
“On our Circle of Life Walks you will admire peacock beauty and the brute force of our sturdy stallions; get the scoop on our biodynamic preparations; stick your hands in our earth worm farm, get the dirty on how we produce our own 100% natural fertiliser and much more. Not to mention the clean air, scenic splendour and awesome views of False Bay in the distance,” adds Christiaan.
The enlightening walks are ideal for permaculture passionistas and gardening clubs wanting to learn some green tips; wine enthusiasts who actually want to know where the bottle on the shelf comes from, or for families and friends in search of unadulterated, bucolic bliss.
The Waterkloof Circle of Life Biodynamic Walks will be on offer until the end of April 2016 and cost R100 per person. Pre-bookings are essential and a maximum of 12 guests per walk is allowed. It starts at 10am and remember the sunscreen, hat and comfortable walking shoes!
