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”.

Wonderful charity tea party

Our annual charity tea party on June the 10th was a wonderful success and we raised 800 Euros for Cork Arc cancer support house in Bantry.
Despite the forecast the dry weather held until mid afternoon at least, and visitors were able to brave heavy winds as long as they held on to hats and hair pins. A steady stream of people came all day both local and from far afield including Australia and America.
They were able to enjoy the gardens and sample the amazing spread of cakes.
Cork Arc cancer support house, with the assistance of Bantry Hospice, extend their services in West Cork at The Bungalow, Bayview, Goureebeg, Bantry. The centre provides help for cancer sufferers and their families. The centre is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 4pm. Anyone affected by cancer can telephone or drop in and talk in confidence with trained volunteers, massage or counselling is also available.
The service is run by Oncology nurse Catriona O'Mahony, counsellors and therapists.
