Summer Throwback: Mugdock Park trip

19th April 2024

Hello, sunshine! On a bright day like today, we are not just welcoming a change in the weather, but also reminiscing about those golden days of last summer!

Throwback to Sunday, 27th August 2023, when 14 of our adventurous community members explored the natural wonders of Mugdock Park. Led by our sessional worker Laureen Walker, we dove into the world of foraging guided by the expertise of Lauren Lochrie, uncovering the secrets of nettles and other plants, turning them into healing teas and medicines.

We didn't just learn; we created! We transformed simple bags into art with beautiful plant prints, and twisted up our own twine from nettle fibres – hands-on learning at its best!

Thanks to Scottish Forestry, that day wasn’t just an outing; it was a connection, a lesson, and a memory crafted with nature’s own hands.

As we bask in today's sunny glow and step into the warmer vibes, let's carry the spirit of that enlightening day into this summer. Who's ready for more sunlit adventures and nature explorations?
