Irish Seed Savers Harvest Festival 2019
Irish Seed Savers Harvest Festival
Sunday September 15th
11am – 5pm
September is an ideal time to showcase our vital conservation work, when our seed harvesting is in full flow and the majority of our rare varieties of Irish heritage apples are looking their best.
With apple, potato and tomato displays, garden and orchard tours, organic gardening demonstrations and apple tasting tours there will be something for the beginner and experienced gardener alike.
On the day we will be offering a select menu in our cafe and our cob pizza oven will be fired up. With over twenty acres of organic seed gardens, native woodland trails and heritage orchards it’s going to be a fun filled day. So come and learn about our vital conservation work or just come for a chat, a cup of tea and a cake in a fun, friendly atmosphere.
