UNDER THE TREE OF ABUNDANCE is a tourist product that takes place under a walnut tree. Upon arrival, visitors will listen to a legend about the walnut, its healing power and the life energy that it hides in its core. You will get to know the nobility of walnut wood and the possibilities for its use, as well as a perspective on the walnut root, as seen by the renowned Slovenian designer Oskar Kogoj.
To get in touch with nature and to experience the pulse of rural life, you will be challenged to a fun competition game »Walnut Carousel«. Each member of the winning team will receive a prize.
After the competition, culinary pampering awaits you. From walnuts and other non-meat ingredients, we have prepared an original culinary product for you - the walnut sausage, which will delight even the most demanding palates. It will be accompanied by homemade bread and a vegetable side dish on the table. You will also have the opportunity to taste a shot of medicinal walnut liqueur or a glass of apple juice.
The participants in the tasting and fun gathering will hear the Slovenian folk tale "Four musicians" and receive a walnut, which may turn into gold.
The Walnut Carousel:
Take some time to socialise under the canopy of a walnut tree with relatives, friends or colleagues.
The »Walnut Carousel« is a peculiar game in which a hand-held device for picking walnuts is used as a competition prop. Participants will be divided into two groups and each will shake a basket of walnuts over the marked area under the walnut tree. The competition takes place by rolling the picker up and down over the area, trying to catch as many walnuts as possible. When all the competitors have had their turn (in the form of a relay race), the second round begins and so on until one group picks up all the walnuts and we get the winners. All the members of the winning group will receive a honey-fruit slice or apple juice as a prize.
