FIRE, FEAST & SO MUCH MORE!
Keen to run with the ethos behind the village table initiative we are going to run events and workshops that build on traditions and artisans crafts. In light of the fact we are located in a protected nature park we also want to bring a closer connection to nature. We hope to introduce foraging walks, apiary visits, a range of ‘Fire & Feast’ nights with a mix of learning and fun, as well as activity days celebrating the nature around us such as photography and painting. We’ve also had interest expressed for language exchange weekends and we think the scavenger hunts will be a great way to do this.
We will work local artisans to offer workshops and events to ‘pass on’ their knowledge to visitors & guests, learnt before modern agricultural methods meant that skills and traditions, once a part of daily life disappear.
