harvest festival at Crook Garden

Saturday 17th September 2- 5 pm.

Please join us as we harvest the last of the produce from our productive garden. We will use the produce to make soup on the open fire. We will also make bread, and share our home produced meal together.

We will also get the opportunity to learn to sing “Jeanie O’the Crook” a song written in the 1800s that celebrates one of the landladies of the Crook Inn.

As always, there may be a few wee jobs to complete in the garden, and many hands make light work.
