Golden Flowers is a heartwarming personal story of an innovative and creative solution to an environmental problem. The project is located in a shack in Khayelitsha. Golden established his business of making flowers from tin cans because of a dream that he had for three nights in a row. The story of how he came to make flowers from waste is one of courage and innovation, and is a challenge to the rest of us. Visitors can watch Golden at work and his flowers are on display in his work area.
Golden's children help him by painting some of the wide range of flowers in bright colours. Although quite a shy individual, Golden will explain exactly how long it takes to make each type of flower. His story is also printed on a card, which is handed out with purchases.
