With your garden tours complete, you will enjoy a delicious brunch in the restaurant. The Flying Apron Cookery changes their brunch menu each week to feature the best local ingredients. You can expect a choice of brunch items such as Eggs Benedict, Waffles or Pancakes and savory items including our famous Flying Apron Burger, Salad Bowl and our signature Chowder, plus new specials each week. Price includes a brunch entrée and tea, coffee or juice and gratuity. If you have room, desserts, beer & wine are available at an additional cost.

Loving Awkward Stems: Floral Arranging Workshop 1:30-3:00

While the idea of picking crooked stems from your garden to use in artistically arranged floral centrepieces may seem daunting, this workshop will nurture excitement for and appreciation of working with the most unruly flowers and their oddly shaped stems.  Flower farmer and floral designer Denise Stockdale from Barefoot Blooms will guide you through the creation of a floral centrepiece in the outdoor classroom at The Flying Apron. Flowers and greenery will have been freshly picked from Barefoot Blooms’ gardens and glassware is provided. Feel free to bring your own small to medium sized vessel for your arrangement (no Mason jars or narrow necked bottles please).
