One more month to go and London Heritage Farm will be hosting its biggest Spring event – the 9th Annual Plant Sale. Our volunteers have been very busy having “Potting Parties” to get ready for the sale. Have a sneak peek at some plants they have already got in the pots.
Apart from our special selection of perennials, organic vegetable seedling, heirloom tomatoes, annuals and herbs; there will be ample supply and great variety of bedding plants and hanging baskets. Our Allotment Gardeners will also contribute some cuttings and extra plants for the sale.
Mark your calendar and the dates are May 9th and 10th, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
Come join the many happenings this Easter weekend at London Heritage Farm. Beautiful tulips around the decorated Farmhouse are blooming and ready for the camera. For kids, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt in the Heritage Gardens and prizes for the winners. While the kids are hunting, you can relax and enjoy the Easter Tea with scones and special goodies in our Tea Room. You can also enter for a draw of an Easter Basket with London Lady Tea and Jam. The Farmhouse, Tea Room and Gift Shop will be open this weekend April 4 & 5 from 12 to 5 pm for the Easter celebration.
Today is the First Day of Spring in the Northern hemisphere which means spring has officially sprung. Have a walk in our Heritage Gardens and enjoy the delightful scenes of early spring. Take a close look of the early spring blossoms you will find along the garden path and share the inspiration from the famous poet, Alice Oswald – “Spring, when the earth tilts closer to the sun, runs a strict timetable of flowers.”
London Heritage Farm will go green this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Come in green and have fun! For those who are feeling particularly festive, come in a leprechaun costume, replete with white stockings, green top hat and fake (or real!) red beard.
To celebrate in an Irish style, our Tea Room will offer St. Patrick’s Day Tea with scone and special themed goodies (maybe also in green). Singer and Pianist Sharon will entertain guests with some Irish tunes. Come with family and friends to join the celebration. Our Tea Room will open for St. Patrick’s Day Tea this Saturday and Sunday on March 14 and 15, 2015 from 12 to 5 pm. Call 604 271 5220 for reservation is recommended.
Katie Lawrence of Richmond Review wrote an article titled “Lovely tea at the farmhouse” highlighting what she found while covering the Valentine’s Tea at the London Heritage Farm’s Tea Room on February 14 and 15, 2015. Richmond Review published the article on February 18, 2015 and here is a reprint of that article.
