21st of December its the last day of the season in the garden. We are closed over Christmas and all of January. The garden cafe, plantshop and farm shop will reopen February 1st.
Eating at Rosendals Garden
The greenhouse cafe serves lunches, sandwiches and pastries of the season. Whenever possible we use our own biodynamically grown vegetables, and all bread is from our own artisan bakery that holds a wood fired stone oven. The whole cafe is organically certified.
It is not possible to make table reservations or prebook food in the greenhouse cafe. However the greenhouses can be booked for weddings, parties, dinners and other private functions.
Book our Sunday Afternoon Tea 14th of October – 25th of November: Greenhouse Afternoon Tea
Wood fired oven bakery
The artisanal bakery produces ecological bread and pastries baked in our wood fired oven. All made by true craftsmanship; everything is done by hand without shortcuts and with the best of biodynamic and organic ingredients.
Shopping at Rosendals Garden
The plant shop offers a carefully selected assortment of flowers and plants, seeds and tools for the urban gardener. During the summer season you can pick your own flowers to be paid by weight. Flower arrangements are available to order.
The farmshop sells bread and cakes from the woodfired bakery, biodynamically grown vegetables from the garden, homemade preserves and pickles as well as carefully chosen books and crafts.
From February 4th 2017 Rosendals Trädgård does not handle bills and coins because we believe that cashless is more safe and efficient for our visitors and for our staff.
About the garden
Today Rosendal is a market garden with vegetable fields, green houses, a rose garden, an orchard, flower beds, compost areas, a vineyard, a playground, an educational garden for children, a bakery, a nursery, a shop and a cafe.
Biodynamic gardening means that we work with nature’s own processes including composting, crop rotation and using manure. All our cultivation is organically and Demeter certified.
The plants we grow are used in our cafe and bakery or sold in our shop. We also supply some of Stockholm’s best restaurants and chefs with fresh produce.
Garden design, consultation and guidance for balconies, terraces, courtyards, flowerbeds and smaller gardens are services we provide.
A little bit of history
For centuries the soil at Rosendal has been nurtured by gardeners. Since 1982 the Rosendal Garden Foundation runs the garden. The purpose of the foundation is to widen the public interest and knowledge of biodynamic gardening and landscaping.
Exploring and learning at Rosendals Garden
Courses and other activities in cooking and gardening are provided, combining learning with enjoyment. Bespoke activities are available for private groups and companies. We also arrange guided tours, seminars and art exhibitions.
Lek Odla Väx! – Play, Cultivate, Grow! – our gardening project for children aged 3-6. During six different visits over the year the children learn about and experience nature’s cycles by cultivating and playing.
Education is an important part of the foundation’s work and every year we offer apprenticeships and training opportunities for students and volunteers.
