The Apothecary lies within the 164 hectare Amohela ho Spitskop Country Retreat & Conservancy – known locally as Spitskop – or in Sotho – Petsana ( The Small Foal). And here you step into the enchanting world of WildFields, where 20 years of dedicated REWILDING has transformed a once neglected landscape into a thriving haven for nature and humans alike – where we walk lightly on the earth.

Today REWILDING resonates worldwide as a powerful solution to combat climate breakdown.

It’s about restoring nature’s delicate balance, from small gardens to vast landscapes. The remarkable impact extends beyond wildlife, nurturing human well-being, health, and a deeper connection with the natural world. At  WildFields there has been no use of chemical fertilizers, poisons, rodenticides or destructive tilling,  and  the Wilded Estate is filled with wild and native plants, wild flowers, wild pollinators, wild bees.

Here in this very special place we can now forage and wild harvest and have started a range of products - healing - soothing products, collection and sale of seeds –  plants – all are available to purchase, both locally and online.
