The Tower Estate is a historic plantation-style homestead, lush with horticulture and organic gardens, sitting atop a small peak in the Parish of St. George. The Manor is set within beautifully landscaped gardens, surrounded by tropical flowering trees, shrubs, vegetables, fruit trees and the island’s world known array of spices. The stone house, built in 1913, has been the home of the Slinger Family since the mid 1940’s. Belinda Bishop is an accomplished global Chef and the Founder of Flavours of Grenada®, a business which focuses on sustainable agriculture and the utilization of Grenada’s resources to create a base for culinary tourism in Grenada. Isabelle Slinger & Belinda Bishop have partnered to share their passions for the agricultural history of food in the Caribbean to travelers from all over the world who visit Grenada. You will be guided on a step-by-step journey from “farm to table” through a signature tour of the Tower Estate’s Organic Gardens, where you will have the opportunity to pick an array of aromatic spices and exotic vegetables. Following traditions of old, witness the building of the outdoor fire that will be used to prepare an authentic Grenadian meal which you will assist to prepare. Music, laughter and a feeling of friendship is required for this experience. Sharing food is the very heart of Grenadian culture. Do a Soca dance and sing along while your pot simmers it way down to a delicious, flavorful, enticing dish that will fill your stomach and stay in your heart forever.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. This tour is not recommended for guests with mobility issues due to the garden visit and the amount of time spent standing.
