Groovy Grandmother’s Day at Hosfords

Posted on | April 11, 2011 | No Comments

Slow Food West Cork and Slow Food Cork City present the third annual International Grandmother’s Day at Hosfords Garden Centre on Sunday 17th April from 2pm.

The day includes:

  • Demos of Traditional Skills such as baking and sausage making
  • Horticultural Talk on Fruit Trees by John Hosford
  • Kid’s Colouring Competition – themed “In the Garden with Granny and Granddad”
  • Real Lemonade Making – A hands on session especially for children (of all ages!)

As part of this year’s theme  – we have 20 apple trees to donate to schools in West Cork and Cork city.  We would love to see the next generation growing and nurturing trees for their own fruit in the school yard. Teachers and those interested in receiving a tree for their school should email or call 086 067 6249 for further details.

Hosfords is located on the main Bandon to Clonakilty road. This sounds like it’s definitely worth popping into if you’re in the area next Sunday.
