Frequently Asked Questions

Where Are You Based?
The Veld and Sea HQ is based at the Good Hope Gardens Nursery, along Plateau Rd in Cape Point, Cape Town, South Africa. The Nursery is situated between Scarborough village and the Cape Point Nature Reserve entrance gate.
What Happens When It Rains?
Please note our experiences go ahead regardless of the weather – fortune flavours and favours the brave! While our foraging sessions take place outdoors, we are wonderfully sheltered in the Glasshouse and surrounds for our food creation sessions, demos, talks and our seasonally inspired meals.

Please bring weather appropriate clothes and footwear to prepare yourself for an enjoyable time outdoors.

I Have A Specific Dietary Requirement. Will You Be Able To Accommodate Me?
We are happy to cater for most dietary requirements provided that you inform us well in advance (ideally at the time of booking, and no less than one week before the event date) so that we can accommodate you.

If you have a specific allergy or if your allergy is severe, we request that you bring with you any medicine/inhalers/epi-pens that you may require if your allergy is severe.

How Many Other People Will There Be?
This is experience dependant.

We usually have a maximum of 25 guests per public workshop.

Do You Cater In Other Locations?
Yes – we offer away foraging workshops, wild flavour dining experiences, catering and collaborations on request if our schedule allows.
Can I Bring My Dog/Pet?
We love dogs, however there are farm dogs at the nursery and we kindly request leaving your pets at home.
I Have Young Children. Can I Bring Them With Me?
Some of our events cater for children to join their parents/guardians, but please bare in mind that these experiences are specifically tailored for adults. If you are interested in a child-focused foraging experience, we can recommend some wonderful local experiences.
Is There Parking Nearby?
There is limited parking at the Nursery parking. On-street parking is allowed as long as you are facing the correct direction when parking.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
Public Workshops: Non-refundable within 72 hours of event. Tickets are non-transferable to other event dates. You may be able to transfer your booking to third parties provided you give us sufficient notice (maximum 2 times).

Postponed event refund: Should we have to postpone a workshop or event from our side, guests have the option to either hold on to their tickets for the new date, or you will have a two week window period from date of notification of postponement to get a refund via our ticketing system.

Cancelled events refund: Should we have to cancel a workshop or event from our side, guests will receive a refund in full or have the option for a credit note that is valid for a year from date of event cancellation.

Is There Public Transport/Can I Uber There?
There is, unfortunately, no public transport in the area. If you do Uber here, we suggest arranging a pickup time with your driver as they are scarce in Cape Point and can take up to 40mins to order an Uber.
How Long Is The Experience?
A half day experience in total will last approximately 4 hours, but timing differs according to individual experiences.
