Aimed at families, this is a fun and interactive workshop that aims to make the connection from garden to table. It enables families to experience and learn about our kitchen veggie gardens and to identify our home grown produce.

Following the session in our kitchen veggie gardens, you will then get the opportunity to create your very own wood fired pizza. One of our chefs will explain the basics of making the perfect pizza, giving you the chance to create your own masterpiece! We will supply a pizza base, our house made tomato sugo and all of the ingredients for you to select your toppings. Watch your pizzas as they go in to the wood-fired oven to be cooked, each labelled with its own name tag and then relax or explore while your pizza is cooking. Our wait staff will delver your creation back to the table for you to enjoy for lunch!

A cash bar will be available to purchase drinks and desserts.

The Experience:

10am - 1pm

Welcome from Falls Retreat team with complimentary housemade soda featuring our homegrown herbs. A team member will engage with the kids and parents to highlight what we do at The Falls Retreat and make the connection between what we grow and eat.

Head into the kitchen veggie garden to identify and harvest produce. Also learn more about recycling and reusing waste with compost and worm farms and check out the chooks!

Head back over to the Bistro for a pizza making session. The housemade pizza bases will already be made and provided on a board with ingredients in the centre of the table to select their own toppings.

Whilst your pizzas are cooking you can take a look around our grounds, browse our in-house pantry store, enjoy a homemade soda by the open fire or play a game outside with the kids!
