A taste of Autumn workshop

September 14, 2019 10:00 am - 3:30 pm


Event Navigation

Come and enjoy the bounty of Autumn in a kitchen garden workshop celebrating all that is in abundance in September. Join garden writer Sally Nex, head gardener, Joshua Sparkes, local chef Ed Versluys, and the veg growers, Hewood organics for a day long course in how to grow your own and make the most of this season’s harvest.

Sally Nex has been growing her own food for over 20 years and writing about it for the last 10 in national magazines including The Garden, BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine and Grow Your Own. She’ll be sharing decades of hands-on, practical experience, passing on what she’s learned, plus the occasional disaster (it happens to us all…!) And with a glut of garden produce to hand, Ed Versluys, will be behind a stove with inspiration for seasonal recipes. Freshly foraged ingredients from the kitchen garden will feature on the menu for lunch, after you’ve worked up an appetite on a wander with head gardener, Joshua Sparkes and Olly Hone.

There’s advice on getting the most from your plot, wherever you garden, sustaining a year-round harvest, extending the seasons and planning your sowing and growing to maximise your harvest.

Tickets for the day long workshop are £85, and include coffee, cake, lunch and the company of our veg garden experts.
