If like me, you’ve tried and failed (rather miserably) at veggie gardening OR you aspire to one day live out in the country, then make a plan to get to Stanford where ex city slickers Jero and his wife Catch will show you how it’s done at Jero’s Garden experiences. Since leaving the big smoke a few years ago, the dynamic duo (and their twin boys) have taken to rural life blissfully and now, they’re sharing the secrets of their sustainable success.
This is their fab flyer, doesn’t it just make you want to get in there and grow cabbages and lettuces and things?
What a visit to Jero’s Garden entails:
*A short stay with a light bite – a Saturday morning deal that’s around 2 ½ hours involving a concise intro to veggie gardening and some cooking ideas too (and of course a seasonal treat to eat with home baked breads and refreshments)
*A longer stay that includes a feast – an extended more in-depth 5 hour experience that goes into more detail about creating a viable veggie garden, plant identification, harvesting your produce, preparing food and of course enjoying a seasonal feast with local boutique wines
*A tailor made experience – think Book Club goes on tour, Hen Party gets down and dirty and Garden Club learns to eat what they grow
Prices start from R200 a person and participants (a minimum of six) can be guaranteed of coming away so inspired by Jero’s passion for growing veggies and Catch’s fabulous cooking (her Italian blood means she knows a thing or two in the kitchen).
Next dates for Jero’s Garden are February 6th and February 20th – book now as the visits fill up quickly!
