Nollaig na mBAn is traditionally on the 6th of January, a special day when the women of Ireland would rest, spend time with their female friends and not do any work or cooking in the home. We love to celebrate this day with pampering, good food, fresh air, beautiful surroundings, why not join us! Or treat a special lady in your life! We are holding the event on the Sunday 5th Jan as Monday is back to work/school and may not suit everyone. Places limited.
We will meet at 10am at Tranquility By Anne, Rambling Rose House, Greenan, Rathdrum, Wicklow.
The morning will begin with a warm, nutritious drink and chat. We will head out on the mountain road for an hour of wild food foraging with Geraldine from Wicklow Wild Foods on the picturesque mountain road. Geraldine will talk about the wild foods we find along the way, their nutritional value, medicinal properties and suggest simple ways to use wild foods in our kitchens. We will return to Rambling Rose House where we will listen to a talk on nutrition for women and ideas around taking care of ourselves and keeping ourselves in optimum health with nutritionist Aisling Kirwan of Cooking up Change, Aisling will prepare lunch with some of the wild foods we have collected and give you lots of simple ideas to increase nutrition in your daily diet.
While we are listening to Aisling's talk, Anne Mc Carthy, Tranquility By Anne, will treat each participant to a hand and arm/scalp/neck and shoulder massage with Phyt's luxurious organic oils.
We will have lots of time to relax, with warm, nutritious drinks, time to relax by the fire, enjoy a delicious lunch and good company.
Ann, Geraldine and Aisling
