We are delighted to invite you to join us for a special afternoon exploring our urban small holding and discovering more about where our food comes from...You will be welcomed with home made cookies, organic cordial for the children and tea/coffee for the grown ups. Then after an introduction to Hen Corner we will explore where our food comes from by:
- Meeting the chickens (everyone can have a stroke/cuddle if they like) and an opportunity to collect the eggs
- Watching the bee hives from a safe distance, studying live bees from behind the glass of an observation hive, exploring the life cycle of a honey bee, dressing up as a bee keeper and tasting some of our award winning honey.
- Exploring the Kitchen Garden and fruit trees to discover what food can be grown and harvested in London, planting herb seeds that can be taken home to germinate
We will finish our time together with tea and cakes....
For more information on keeping chickens in London, you may enjoy our series of films:
‘Since moving into her West London home a few years ago, Sara Ward and her husband Andy have industriously set up Hen Corner, where they now have a stunning kitchen garden – with raised beds full of seasonal crops – fruit and nut trees, a flock of clucking hens and a beehive with busy bees hard at work making honey.’ Michele Jameson, Country Living Magazine
We are Hen Corner.
We love the bee keepers, the veggie bed diggers, the jam makers and cider drinkers, the chicken fanciers and the real bread bakers.
But not just in the deepest darkest countryside or the far, far away villages but right here in our cities and towns.
So, come on a course and join us on the journey…
