Plant lover, Robyn Simmons, spent her youth outdoors in the veld amongst flowers that she says, were her friends. This early childhood passion for plants combined with her love for her late grandmother (who was Robyn’s mentor), resulted in a dynamic woman who has wisdom way beyond her years.


Robyn now lives in the riverside town of Stanford where she owns a holistic landscaping company known as, The Barefoot Connection. When Robyn isn’t creating gardens you will find her out in the fields where she is a personal guide on A Cure for Fynbos Blindness.
