The Gallery's Garden
Cafe or restaurant
The Gallery's Garden is a boutique gardening experience in the heart of Durbanville. We have been given the privilege of revitalising an under-utilized courtyard space at the historical building premises of Rust-en-Vrede Art Gallery.
We have started preparing raised allotment planter boxes for the community to hire, which we hope will help to beautify the courtyard as well as to breathe fresh life into the space. Additional features in the garden are a custom-built greenhouse and 'Bug Manor'. As nature so often inspires art, we thought what better compliment to a gallery, than a garden! We hope you join us on our journey.
Monday to Friday: 9h00 to 16h00 Saturdays: 9h00 to 13h00 (Subject to change)
