RHS Garden Harlow Carr celebrates the autumn season
with harvest festival 4 - 5 October 2014
Celebrate the autumn harvest at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Harlow Carr, as the North Yorkshire garden shares the gifts of the season in its Taste of Autumn Festival (4 - 5 October) supported by Mr Fothergill's Seeds, where food, music, and cookery will come together in a bounty of seasonal delights.
The annual event at the Society's most northerly garden, in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, is jam-packed with a range of horticultural and inspirational foodie delights. Visitors can enjoy outdoor cookery demonstrations by Harrogate chef Lionel Strub and gain valuable advice from local horticultural celebrities, Joe Maiden and Martin Fish. Local artisan food producers will also give visitors plenty to sink their teeth into at the pop-up autumn food market. The fun doesn't end there, as the unique BarrowBand will perform its repertoire of song and dance routines all inspired by fruit and vegetables.
Paul Cook, Curator at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, says: "The autumn harvest is a great occasion in the garden. Collecting the fruits, herbs and vegetables of the year's labour and transforming them into delicious dishes is a fantastic way to celebrate the skills of our horticultural team."

About the RHS
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1804 by Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgwood for the encouragement and improvement of the science, art and practice of horticulture. We held our first flower shows in 1820, were granted a Royal Charter in 1861 and acquired RHS Garden Wisley, our flagship garden, in 1903. From our first meetings in a small room off London's Piccadilly, we have grown to become the world's largest gardening charity.
Today the RHS is committed to providing a voice for all gardeners. We are driven by a simple love of plants and a belief that gardeners make the world a better place. 210 years on we continue to safeguard and advance the science, art and practice of horticulture, creating displays that inspire people to garden. In all aspects of our work we help gardeners develop by sharing our knowledge of plants, gardens and the environment.
RHS membership is for anyone with an interest in gardening. Support the RHS and secure a healthy future for gardening. For more information call: 0845 130 4646, or visit www.rhs.org.uk/join
