From Bowling Green to Bowl of Greens


Formerly a disused bowling green in the foothills of Devil’s Peak and dwarfed by Table Mountain on the top side, Oranjezicht City Farm is a growing inner city farming project run primarily by volunteers, on the fringes of the City Bowl.

Interactive and child and pet-friendly, the farm’s vision is to get people to understand what they are eating and where it comes from.

Visit the popular Saturday organic market or do a guided self-harvest on Wednesday afternoons, weather permitting.  For more information on opening times and location visit the farm’s website.

The site also has a fascinating history and some of the cobbled bridlepaths remain from what was at one time the largest farm in the Upper Table Valley, occupied by the Van Breda family for seven generations.
