World-first as Garsons hosts 'Pilates with Pumpkins' in their pick-your-own fields.
For most of us, pumpkins are the quintessential autumn fruit traditionally used to adorn our homes around Halloween time. However, at Garsons Esher, they have taken this one step further by hosting the world's first 'Pilates with Pumpkins' class. The event was taking place as part of Whole Earth’s campaign to encourage the public to enjoy the great outdoors during the autumn months.
"Despite the weather getting colder and the nights longer, we are encouraging the nation to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, be that through a long walk or through a brand-new form of exercise – Pumpkin Pilates!" says Katrina Farmer, senior brand manager at Whole Earth, whose natural health foods are stocked in Garsons farm shop.
"We are involved in many projects here at Garsons, but I can’t say we’ve ever had a request to host a Pilates class in the pumpkin fields!” says Ben Thompson, director at Garsons.
