Babylonstoren prides itself on the organic fruit and vegetables that abound in our gardens, and we are happy to share our experience. Join Brent Reid and Darryl Combrink, the Babylonstoren vegetable team, in the vegetable garden where they will demonstrate their top growing tips and tell you more about crop rotation, no-dig soil preparation, compost, mulches, propagation and planting. They’ll then set you up with the knowledge to plant sweet potatoes, carrots, beetroot, beans, eggplant and fennel in your patch this season. You’ll also have the opportunity to sow some salad for your homeward trip, before sitting down to lunch, fresh from our garden.

Steaming coffee from our Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Greenhouse Restaurant is included.
