the fynbos and karoo biomes
Natural fynbos relies on occasional fires for its regeneration and growth. Much of the biome’s diversity has been lost to wheat, fruit and wine production. Propagating wild botanicals on marginal and often abandoned farmlands protects and encourages naturally occurring fynbos in its regeneration, contributing to land restoration, species wealth and the diversity of plant, bird and insect life.
The cultivation and seeding of natural fynbos on these lands adds to the strength and resilience of the biome and Cape Floral Kingdom. As seeds continue to spread, the shrub-lands of the Fynbos Kingdom will thrive.
