Harvest Weekend at Home of Charles Darwin – Down House

16 September 2017 - 17 September 2017

Join Down House’s expert gardeners who’ll cover a different topic each weekend giving you top tips from the harvest season as they draw from their experience tending Darwin’s famous garden – his ‘outdoor laboratory’.

Each event consists of a special gardener-led tour of the productive parts of the garden – the organically managed orchard and walled kitchen garden ­– finishing off with an in-depth look at the featured crops of the week.

Hands-on activities are available for younger visitors and freshly prepared produce from the garden will be on offer in the tearoom.

This weekend find out about harvest crops and how you can use them in the Kitchen, including recipes from Emma Darwin’s very own cookbook!

Harvest Weekend is on from 11am – 4pm across the weekend.
