Franschhoek Wine Valley

Join in on a pumpkin fun day Workshop at Babylonstoren

  • R250 p.p.
  • 13 March 2021, 17:00 – 20:00
  • Presented by Terry de Waal & the garden team
  • Please meet us at the Farm Shop

Only 45 places (max 2 children per 1 adult) available.

We welcome kids, mums and dads for some fun exploring the bountiful pumpkin varieties in the garden! With a hop, skip and jump we’ll go on an exciting pumpkin treasure hunt – exploring the enormous Atlantic Giant pumpkin and crawling into the Snail that’s covered with climbing calabashes and gourds. As we walk through the belly of the Puff Adder, children of all ages will learn about the different varieties of pumpkin: Turk’s turban, flat white boerpampoen, deep orange Cinderella, delicious golden hubbard squash, speckled swan, best-to-eat muscat and, of course, Halloween. With the help of their parents, children will then get the opportunity to cut, scoop and hammer their own pumpkins into shape.

When all the pumpkins are ship-shape, we will light a candle inside each creation and enjoy pizza and a pumpkin ice lolly from the Greenhouse Restaurant. 

Note: As we’ll be working with sharp objects, children must be accompanied by an adult. Maximum two children (between 5 and 12 years old) per adult.
