In memory of Margrietha Smidt

In memory of Margrietha Smidt

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Margrietha Smidt, on Sunday 24th October 2021, after a short battle with cancer.

Fellow plant producers and green industry colleagues will remember Margrietha as the quiet, determined and friendly person in charge of the production section of Malanseuns Pleasure Plants. Margrietha has been working for Malanseuns since 1985 after graduating from Technikon Pretoria. Over the years she earned respect as a very competent plant propagator and  production manager. 

We greatly appreciated her participation at many of our IPPS Southern Africa conferences and field trips, accompanied by her husband, Ludwig.

Margrietha, you will be greatly missed.
