Botanical Society of South Africa - Kirstenbosch Branch
Know, grow and protect South Africa's indigenous flora

Janette Yeats

There will be a gathering to honour the life ofJanette Yeats on Saturday 22 September at 11h00

in the New Education Centre, Harold Porter National Botanical Garden, Betty's Bay.

All who knew her are invited to join us.

Janette served on the Kirstenbosch Branch Committee from 1993. She was twice Chair of the Branch Committee and also served on BotSoc Council. She was instrumental in formalising and growing the Branch’s volunteer programme, and she organised the Kirstenbosch annual Plant Fair until 2013, which was a massive undertaking.

Janette was awarded BotSoc Life Membership for her contribution to the Society. In her latter years, she did an enormous amount of work as a committed IAP (interested and affected party) for many policies and Environmental Impact Assessments in the Kogelberg area.
