As the name suggests, this foraging-themed workshop consists of three different elements, all relating to the theme of foraging for nature’s delights:
We will prepare a delicious lunch for you, using the wonderful herbs and plants that we grow right here on the farm, as well as the best local and organic local ingredients, sourced from growers and artisan producers that we know from the local area.
After enjoying a delicious lunch, we’ll head out for a walk around the farm and find a lovely spot to paint the landscape using a wet-on-wet technique, to give you a lasting memory of your visit in the form of your very own hand-painted masterpiece.
Finally, we’ll teach you how to harvest, combine, and create natural soothing creams for your face and body, as well as massage balms that Melanie uses in her massage practice, all using the natural ingredients growing around us.
We loved our stay in the eco cabin in Goleen Harbour. It’s so cute and cosy with amazing views. The hot tub also over looks the sea and the cabins are only a short walk to a clear swimming spot, fab pub and chipper should the need arise. Crookhaven and Barleycove beach are also only a short drive. We were blessed with the weather during our stay which obviously made it even more enjoyable. Matt and his staff are super friendly and we look forward to coming back in the future when no doubt it will be even more special as he has big plans for the site. Can’t recommend enough!
