Margaret Roberts, the grower and author who popularised the use of herbs in South Africa, has died aged 79 after a short illness.
The Margaret Roberts website, says Margaret was absolutely not ready to go. She was in the middle of 3 new books with her daughter, Sandy, and had a number of new projects on the go at their amazing farm, the Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre.
‘With over 50 years in natural healing and over 40 titles, she was an inspiration to many - a national treasure.’
Her daughter will continue their work at the Herbal Centre in De Wildt in Magaliesburg.
