Hedgerow Gathering & Preserving with Kylee Newton from Newton & Pott

Book online

We are super excited to welcome Kylee Newton, founder of London’s coolest preserving company Newton & Pott, and the author of ‘The Modern Preserver’.

With our fields and hedgerows burgeoning at this time of year with fruits, nuts & herbs, autumn is the perfect time to gather nature’s harvest to make jams and chutneys to warm and delight you through the colder months ahead.

Join us for a relaxed Sunday gathering, which will include exploring the beautiful lanes surrounding The Medicine Garden, foraging of local delicacies (weather dependant!). Kylee will show you the ins and outs of preserving, setting points, the magic of pectin, and good sterilisation practices to ensure successful preserving.

Includes morning coffee & freshly baked biscuits, a delicious Blid & Hatton lunch inspired by Kylee’s preserves. You will also be able take a bag of your own produce away with you!

Note: As we hope to spend some of our day outside, please dress appropriately!
