We are starting 2013 off with nature in mind. Nature, the green movement and global warming are becoming familiar themes in our everyday lives. We are more conscious that global warming brings about climate change and only have to look back at the plentiful rainfall experienced over the past few years to realize its effects of global warming on our daily comings and goings. This has led to a flourishing green movement, which even businesses are capitalizing on, as the global community is realizing that nature is indeed a finite resource worth saving. It so happens that Landhuis Bloemhof is situated on 7 hectares of land which is designated as city park by the urban planning authorities, EOP. We have worked hard during 2011 and 2012 in order to create three beautiful walking routes through the mondi behind the bathhouse. It is our mission for 2013 to put this unique resource to responsible use by promoting and preserving its pristine qualities. True to our first mission Landhuis Bloemhof, as a center for the promotion and furtherance of our local fine arts and culture, we take great pleasure in inviting you, with whom we have always had a fine relationship, to participate in the 'Back to Nature' exhibition, an hommage to our mondi.
