Well Easter is upon us now so firstly I just want to update everyone on what’s happening for the rest of April. The Terra Viva Great Easter Egg Hunt is on Saturday 15th April 2017, celebrate Easter this year with an exciting Easter Egg Hunt for kids aged up to 13 years old. Come and explore the Garden Center, find the special eggs around the place and collect the letters. Once you find all 11 letters, unscramble the secret word and bring your map with right word to the till and receive your Easter Goodie Bag - it’s that easy!
In the café for the school holidays we are running a colouring in competition, we have 3 of our yummy Terra Viva kids treats to give away to 3 lucky winners! One for 3-5 year old’s, one for 5-8 year old’s and one for 8-12 year old’s. Please bring this finished colouring-in sheet back to us in the café and winners will be drawn on the last day of the upcoming school holidays (30th of April). You will have all of term 2 to come and claim your kids treat, but it will expire when the next holidays start.
The staff in the café have been working extra hard as the lunch, brunch, high tea and drinks menus have all undergone a revamp, there are some yummy new dishes on the lunch and brunch menu, my favourite is pulled pork chilaquiles and gluten free braised lamb gyro bowl. We have new wines, beers & ciders on the menu, my favourites are Melton Estate Summer Love and the 3 boys range of beers, these are delicious extras to a lunch or afternoon tea gathering.
Dani our head barista has been super busy working on some specialty hot drinks for the winter, we currently have a gourmet hot chocolate made from a Bennetto stick, which comes in choc mint or original flavour, these are made using 70% cocoa so they don’t have an overly sweet flavour and using all natural sugars. Dani has also launched a white hot chocolate topped off with gold sugar and a jaffa hot chocolate, these are both incredibly delicious and a must have!
With May speeding up fast we have Mother’s Day coming, Terra Viva Home & Garden are running “Mum in a million” facebook competition, one deserving mum will win a high tea for four people on Mother’s Day and 3 other mums’ will win “Mum in a million” rose from the garden centre. To enter visit Terra Viva Home & Garden facebook page, more details are started on their page.
Recently we had a private function for canapes and a platter, Steve our head chef and Lucy our functions and catering coordinator and all the staff had been busy organizing this event, everything turned out incredible and was a success. “I have had so many really good comments regarding the venue, food, and service. Everyone had a great night – thank you to you all. Also, Lucy thanks particularly for your part in the night and the organising and planning – nothing was a problem and you made it really easy.” - Heather Clouston - Nursing Reunion; April 2017. I want to wish all our customers and the community a happy and enjoyable Easter, we look forward to seeing you all again after the break.
