Worcester Veld Reserve

Established in 1935 in response to the severe drought of the 1920’s, The Worcester Veld Reserve is the propagation of seeds of indigenous veld species, unique to the area. The requirement was to provide help to the farmers to improve their veld, which had already severely deteriorated because of the drought. The reserve covers 110 hectares, 25 of which are arable. The long-term rainfall is 212 mm per year with the highest annual rainfall of 426 mm.
