Meet the Owner and Founder
Tracey’s passion for gardening started from when she was knee high to a grasshopper and is as strong as ever.
Tracey was born in a Village in Dorset, England and is the proud founder of her landscaping and edible garden service Village Gardens that has been growing rapidly over the past four years. The company’s secret to success is very much based on excellent service provision and the that fact that Village Gardens is a dynamic company that is ever changing depending on the client’s expectations and the shift in our climate. Village Gardens specializes in small to medium sized water wise and edible gardens. Other services include hard gardens, more traditional gardens, indigenous edibles, container gardens and of course, seasonal maintenance. Tracey has sourced an excellent partner to assist with drip irrigation and Jojo tanks to help us though the dry seasons. Village Gardens has a team of 3 landscapers and a brilliant group of guys that are passionate about ensuring everyone can have the garden of their dreams. The staff are all extremely respectful and Tracey says they are even happy to save an odd bee or two struggling in the pool; ‘That’s just how we are’. Tracey is very proud to say that 10% of all monies made by Village Gardens is donated to animal charities including 4 paws and Panthera Africa.
Tracey is very humbled to add that she has been fortunate to write for the Fairlady’s garden pages, Seeff magazine, Bay Magazine’s garden pages as well as offering garden tips and advice in the Billboard magazine. Tracey writes gardening articles for numerous magazines and is sometimes guest speaker talking about food gardens with Pippa Hudson on Cape Talk 567am.
I am foremost a husband and a father, who just so happens to love nature and the outdoors. My career as an award winning Golf Course Architect has taken me to various parts of the world and given me the pleasure of working in and with a wide variety of landscapes, from Arid to Tropical. It has also gifted me the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the fragility of the world we live in and the importance that we have to play in nurturing it and the environment. Moving from Golf Course Design to Landscapes has been natural diversion for me and I am thrilled to be working with such a passionate team and in a very rewarding discipline. Through my diverse tertiary education qualifications, career portfolio and professional affiliations I add a broad range of expertise and experiences to Village Garden and I look forward to helping Tracey and her team deliver spectacular projects.
Hi, my name is George Chimuti, a Zimbabwean citizen living in South Africa. My interest in gardens began with doing agriculture at school as my practical subject. Now working with Tracey Cole of Village Gardens makes me even more interested in gardening. My favorite is edible gardening as I find it amazing how nature works with plants. I encourage people to grow their own herbs and vegetables because knowing what you use to feed and treat with makes you confident that you are eating 100% organic. I’m saying so because some products are labeled organic on the market but you never know what types of fertilizer and pesticides they use. At Village Gardens we encourage people to grow their own herbs and vegetables because you know exactly what you use to feed and treat them. When it comes to landscaping, with help of two female landscapers I work with for Village Gardens, makes me more and more interested in gardening. Knowing the names of plants and what they require to grow is an amazing experience.
