This year was very different compared to 2015 when we did have showery afternoons and most meet ups with only a few participants, sometimes just me or me plus another.
For 2017 there have been some requests for more some workshop style meetup ups both in creative writing and nature walk identification and foraging for herbs and food. Looking into that.
I was disappointed that our island picnics were a flop this year, after the joyful gatherings on Lake Isle Of Innisfree and Beezie's Island in 2015. Our time on Trinity Island, Lough Key was good though, well supported. Who would like to do that again?
During 2017 would love to get support for visits to Church Island and Lake Isle of Innisfree again on Lough Gill.
I enjoyed our visits to new places, Longford Demesne Wood, Belleek Wood, Fowley Falls and Ballyconnell Canal Loop Walk. I think we will fit all of those into 2017 with an exception of Belleek as there is another new Mayo woodland I would like to schedule.
Bards In The Woods meet ups are FREE, just bring something for the picnic table, but getting the word out about what we do has surprising expenses so we will need to get in some small income stream to cover these. I will post something about Patreon here soon.
Meanwhile, thank you for a lovely lively and vitality boosting, creative boosting 2016 through Bards In The Woods. Looking forward to 2017.
