The Fern Society of Southern Africa formally met for the first time on the 8th of March 1980. The quarterly journal was first published in September 1983 and again in March 1986. Since then over eighty issues have been published. A regional group was formed in 1982 in Southern Natal, but lasted only two years before breaking up. The first honorary member, Dr WBG Jacobsen, was elected in 1984. The Fern Society has been associated with various persons, places and organizations including Keith Kirsten’s Waterkloof Garden Centre (1985), the Manie van der Schijff Botanical Garden of the University of Pretoria (1989), the Pretoria National Botanical Garden (1990) and the Fern Festival in Graskop (1992). Several fern surveys were done for forestry companies as well as for Nature Conservation and various private landowners over the past 27 years. The Society presently has approximately 80 members throughout Southern Africa, all sharing a mutual interest in ferns.Continue reading →

The Western Cape Rose Society (WCRS) was the first Provincial Society formed in 1969 by Willie Staegeman and Sid Cywes, who became the first chairman and vice chairman respectively, and a number of other well-known local rosarians as committee members. Subsequently the WCRS negotiated with the then Transvaal ROSA for the establishment of an umbrella organisation of rose societies which became the Federation of rose societies ?ROSA ?in 1970. Many well known rose growers joined the WCRS, among them Duncan Henderson, the Lindners, Bill Horwood and several others. At the WCRS we work together to make our cause known; to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you?re ready to lend a hand at one of our rose activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, this is the place to do it.
We welcome the addition of all new members, so if you are keen to get involved or just have a passion for roses please don’t hesitate to join our group.Continue reading →
