2020 is the year of herbs (#yearofherbs) and to celebrate we have launched a new section on our website called 'All about Herbs' with articles on a number of our favourite herbs including Mint, Lavender and Oregano. This will enable you to explore and learn from our passion with herbs.
During the year Jekka will also be posting on our instagram @jekkasherbfarm our herb of the month; potentially you have already seen January's herb of the month, Bay (Laurus nobilis); an ornamental, evergreen, culinary herb. See also Jekka's Blog on Bay and check if your Bay is infact edible.
We are delighted to be welcoming a number of experts in their fields to teach at Jekka's during the year. We are offering master classes in topics from tea blending to photography as part of our new Friends of Jekka's series:
Our ever popular Open Days are typically on the first Friday and Saturday of the month between April and September. Make a note in your diary for our first Open Days of 2020 that are on Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th April. No entrance fee or booking required.
2020 will see our first herb festival where we will be celebrating herbs with talks and demonstration from Jekka and friends. Save the date and we will publish more details over the coming months. Our HerbFest will be on Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th July.
