An Autumn/Winter Garden & Lunch – Saturday 10 August 2024


Saturday, 10 August 2024
10am till 2pm

This is combined garden and lunch Workshop! I will share with you my basic knowledge of how to setup a kitchen garden and how to maintain it. We will focus on the autumn/winter garden, and lightly touch on a plan for the spring/summer garden. We will then harvest a few veggies from the kitchen garden to cook an Italian pranzo (lunch) together.

There will be home-style cooking and baking involved, with lots of chatting, laughing and learning along the way. We will then sit outside (alfresco style) together to enjoy the fruits of our labour sampling authentic Italian fare with a glass (or two) of vino.

TO BOOK USING GIFT VOUCHER: Please email with your contact details and voucher number. Angela will reply with booking confirmation or if extra payment is required.
