Bushcraft and Vegetables.
We have started by turning the beds in the vegetable garden and working our way through the alphabet of desirable vegetables, herbs and flowers. So far we have only really decided that swedes and turnips are not that exciting, and that we want most of the rest of nature's bounty. We have worked out a planting scheme based on wisdom gleaned solely from books with the words 'Easy' and 'Vegetable' in the title, built a few glazed frames and planted a some seeds. Watch this space.
This leads us neatly onto 2 weeks in August we have allocated for Bushcraft courses. For a maximum of 12 people these courses will include guided hillwalking, a 2 day open canoe trip down the Spey back to Inshriach, wild foods, shelter and outdoor cooking, probably a whisky tasting and most importantly, be fully catered by our favourite chef, Allan, using food from the vegetable garden, foraged food and local meat and game. 2nd to the 8th August and 9th to the 15th, £575 per head inclusive, anyone up for it can drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
