In a rural village in Matale, your planter host will teach you about the trees, crops and local-style of cooking as you journey around the farm.
The Sri Lankan garden is actually a particularly picturesque farm spread over 15 and a half acres towards the top of a mountain so that it boasts incredible views of the Aluvihare Mountains. You are greeted by your host with farm sourced fresh juice and taken on a guided walk where you can learn about the gardenâ€™s collection of Sri Lankan produce, from pepper to papaya, cocoa to coconut and mango to mahogany. After observing these crops growing, enjoy the fruits of the plantersâ€™ labour with a traditionally prepared rice and curry lunch.
