Jester House — Saturday 8 November — 2 – 4 pm
The Jester House café was started in a converted 1920’s cottage by Judy and Steve Richards in November 1991 and was the first rural café in the Tasman district. It has since been rebuilt in a ‘modern medieval’ theme using post and beam construction with light earth infill. There are many green features, plus garden sculptures and art work.
The café is open from 9.00 am until 5.00pm seven days a week, serving breakfasts, lunches and teas. Everything is made on site including all the breads, cakes, sauces and dressings to ensure the flavours are unique to Jester House. You can have lunch there beforehand (best to book a table on 03 5266742) if you wish, or buy a drink and socialise a bit afterwards.
Venue is Jester House, 320 Aporo Road in Tasman.
Please gather promptly on the lawn by the wishing well by 2pm then Steve will take us through to the private garden. He will talk about permaculture, crop rotation and their trees.
