Country comes to town – ‘From the Earth’ Expo

If you’re one of those city dwellers who yearn to exchange the mad rush of the city for the peaceful yet adventurous life that the country and farm offers – even just for the day, From the Earth is the expo for you. This unique concept of bringing everything that is homemade, healthy and natural right to your doorstep will take place in the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 16-18 October 2009 …

From the Earth Expo

This Expo will emphasise man’s skills and creativity in transforming nature’s treasures into products that have become essential to our way of life. Come experience the goodness of the earth through demonstrations and workshops about the healing properties of herbs, pasta making and bread baking, cheese and wine pairing and preserving fruit.

Bring the kids to witness the wonder of being close to sheep, cattle, pigs, alpacas, horses and poultry – all under one roof.  Products such as herbs, meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables will be housed in separate country lanes to give the visitor a complete and exhilarating experience of the diversity the land offers.  Spend some time around a real life show ring and view some of South Africa’s top animals in action.

The finer details:
Tickets at R50.00 for adults and R40.00 for pensioners, will be sold through Computicket and at the door.
Children 12 years and under will be admitted free.
The expo will be open on Friday and Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00 and on Sunday from 10:00 to 17:00.
The organisers, Agri-Expo, can be contacted for further information at telephone +27 (0)21 975-4440.
