Francine Raymond – The Garden Farmer Tour

Saturday 6 October & Sunday 7 October

3pm-4pm, £10 including cocktail.



Join Francine Raymond in a tour of her garden, as she brings her new book to life and enjoy a cocktail and delicious nibbles made from seasonal fare from Mighty Fine Foods.

A punnet of plums from your tree, a handful of gooseberries; home-grown nuts and herbs, and a few freshly laid eggs from your hens – all enjoyed in your own small plot. What could be more satisfying?

The Garden Farmer is an evocative journal and monthly guide to getting the most out of your garden throughout the year. Whether you are a keen gardener looking for inspiration, or just starting out and wanting to rediscover and reclaim your patch of earth, Sunday Telegraph garden-columnist Francine Raymond lays the groundwork for a bountiful year of garden farming.

Maybe you would like to get outside more, grow a few essential vegetables, some fruit trees or bushes for preserving, and create a scented kitchen garden to provide for you year round. Or perhaps you will raise a small flock of ducks or geese, or even a couple of pigs? Could this be the year you decorate your home with nature’s adornments, encourage wildlife back to pollinate your trees and plants, and spend celebratory hours in a haven of your own creation?

Each chapter of The Garden Farmer offers insight into the topics and projects you might be contemplating that month, along with planting notes and timely advice, and a recipe that honours the fruits of your labour. With just a little effort and planning, every garden can be tended in tune with nature, and every gardener can enjoy a host of seasonal delights from their own soil.

Join Francine and Katy Cox from Mighty Fine Foods (a regular at Best of Faversham Markets and and producers of Macknades Fresh range’) in a celebration of all a garden offers at this time of the year. Enjoy a cocktail and delicious nibbles made from seasonal fare, and wander round the garden marvelling at all that can be grown or raised in even a small urban space. Preview Francine’s gardening adventures on her blog at and on Instagram @francinehens.

Please the address for the event will be emailed to ticket holders before the event.
