Even though it was bitterly cold during our #AutumnCelebration, we had lots of gluhwine, good cheer and activities to keep us all warm! From the unique music events, to the very successful cooking demos, a lot of fun was had by all those who dared to braved the cold!
The children learned how to create their own permaculture garden while the adults attended the very interesting talks by local fundis on topics from permaculture to the history of some of our amazing gardens.
As this was our first #autumncelebration, we were still finding our feet and did not quite bargain on the severe cold hampering some of the outdoor activities. Luckily not all the autumn leaves got washed away by the rain, and the garden enthusiasts had a glimpse of the radiant beauty of Hogsback in Autumn. St Patrick on the Hill chapel had a lovely exibition of autumn themed flower arrangements.
The celebration dinners, high tea, food pairing, sheep in a barrel and cooking demo catered for all the different foodie tastes and Hogsback is quickly establishing itself as a connoisseur food destination.
The #wintercelebration will be even bigger and better, so keep your eyes peeled for more information and go and have a look at the provisional draft programme with more items being addedd daily!
