Ewe Charity Tea Party

We are having the annual charity tea party on Saturday June 9th from 1-5 PM.

This year it is in aid of Cope Foundation in Skibbereen and all proceeds from the garden entry fees all day and the afternoon cake sales will go to Cope Foundation.

It is extra special this year since The Ewe Experience celebrate our 25th year in West Cork and we are delighted to be supporting Cope Foundation.

Cope Foundation supports 2,350 children and adults of every ability to live life their way. They work to enhance the lives of people with an intellectual disability and/or autism; working in partnership with them, their families and local communities to provide a broad range of person centred services and supports. They offer these services and supports through a network of 69 locations all over Cork City and County. Cope Foundation Centres/Supports can be found dotted throughout Cork city as well as: Ballincollig; Mitchelstown; Fermoy; Midleton; Cobh; Carrigaline; Clonakilty; Bandon; Skibbereen; Macroom; Kanturk and Mallow.

Cope Foundation have a strong network of families and supporters in the west Cork area and their fundraising efforts benefit the services in so many ways. Fundraising is a very important part of the work. Fundraising income allows Cope to do more for the people they support, ensuring they live a life of their choosing, connected to and participating in, their communities.

The annual charity day at The Ewe Experience has benefitted a wide range of causes, including Crumlin Children’s Hospital, The Irish Heart Foundation, Cork Cancer Research Centre, Rehabcare, The National Learning Network, Bantry Hospice, The Alzheimer Society, Rural Animal Welfare Resources (RAWR), Bantry Care For The Aged, CoAction and most recently Cork ARC Cancer Support House.

Our Wishing Well, where visitors throw coins into a sculpture flower bowl, has also contributed to a range of charities, including Pieta House, suicide & self-harm prevention centre in Cork, and Bumbleance, The Children's National Ambulance Service.

Open for West Cork Food Festival

For the first time The Ewe Experience will take part in the West Cork Food Festival. Two green-fingered creators of wild forage feasts and innovative gardens are moving from England to West Cork to launch an exciting new venture, Two Green Shoots, at The West Cork Food Festival.

Kloe Wood Lyndorff and Adam Carveth are launching a taster hosted by The Ewe Experience as part of the West Cork Food Festival, which runs from 8th to 17th September. Wonderful wild feast products foraged from the beautiful Caha mountain area, will be available at The Ewe throughout the festival week, with a tasty pop up cafe on Sunday 10th from 10 to 6 pm. There will also be two special wild tea feasts with a workshop on Saturday the 16th and Sunday 17th from 2.30 to 4 pm (places limited for these two dates so please book).

Two Green Shoots plan to explore the nature of the Caha Mountains, through a series of shared wild forest feasts, workshops and escapes. They also offer quality garden care and down-to-earth garden design with a difference!

Kloe who grew up at The Ewe Experience (in Goleen and Glengarriff) is returning to launch Two Green Shoots with Adam Carveth an RHS Gardener. Both are leaving their jobs to take up this new challenge, Adam as head gardener at Knebworth in Hertfordshire (gothic venue for Harry Potter & Stones/Pink Floyd etc concerts) and Kloe as Project Manager at Groundwork UK. Kloe, a biologist and environmental designer, has studied and worked at universities, The European Centre for the Environment & Human Health and a range of community projects across the UK.

Sheena Wood at The Ewe says: “Adam with his broad garden and plant expertise and Kloe with her natural science and creative thinking, are always buzzing with ideas. They have been a really inspiring influence to us at The Ewe, so it feels fitting and very exciting to be hosting this as our end-of-season finale, a feast based on the nature around us”.
