Gardening in a changing world
Dr. David Rae, Director of Horticulture and Learning at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) explains how their approach to gardening has changed with the times. While the gardens are in existence since 1670 they strive to be relevant in the modern world and are embracing a more natural way of gardening.
You are warmly invited to view and enjoy this unique series of beautiful botanical vegetable prints in the perfect ambiance of The Green Barn Gallery & Restaurant.
Original Water Colour Paintings by acclaimed botanical artist Wendy Walsh with portraits of Wendy by her daughter Lesley Fennell
Wendy Walsh was one of Ireland’s foremost botanical artists. She illustrated over a dozen botanical books, and designed postage stamps for the postal service of Ireland, and for Kiribati (formerly the Gilbert Islands). In addition she has worked with the late Sybil Connolly on fabric designs for Brunswick and Fils, and ceramics for Tiffany’s, including designs based on the flower collages of Mary Delany.

We are excited to open our New Green Barn which we have been working on for the last six months or longer when you take in all the hurdles. Serving the freshest possible organic produce straight from our garden that morning, or from local organic beef and poultry farmers, we strive to serve you the best seasonal produce which reflects in our changing menus. We love to combine, taste, texture and colours and believe in unfussy, unpretentious food, letting our produce be the strength in what you eat.
