If you are looking for something to do as a family on Heritage day, why not go to Oranjezicht City Farm.
It is situated on the corner of Orange Street and Sidmouth Avenue in Oranjezicht.
The Oranjezicht City Farm is almost a year old. This non profit venture is run by volunteers and aims to promote the local community, food and culture. The gardens are home to vegetables, fruit trees and herbs, and were designed by Tanya de Villiers, a landscape architect.
Open between 10am and 4pm on Heritage Day, kids entrance is free and adults pay R15.
A full program ensures there is something for everyone.
Nick the Magican, Tracy the Snake Lady and a petting farmyard to delight the kids, while adults can enjoy the food, plant and flower market, and music by the Andrew Ford Jazz Quartet and the Kolo Nova Movie Band (Balkan Music).
For the whole family there is a choice of 2 historic walks in the area, and the Fields of Spring Tour for which gumboots are recommended.
This Heritage Day Event is in support of OH Watch, a community initiative for the Oranjezicht and Higgovale Communities. For more info go to http://www.ohwatch.co.za/
