Soil โ€“ do you dig it?
Robert Burns certainly did! He spent most of his 37 years surround by farming and the natural environment, writing over 110 works inspired by nature. Burnsโ€™ exposure started at a young age when he helped his father, William, on the Alloway land William rented, now the site of Burns Cottage. He then worked 130 acres at Mount Oliphant (1777-84), 118 acres at Mossgiel with his brother Gilbert (1784-1786) and finally Ellisland (1789-1791).

โ€œSo I must toil, and sweat and moil, and labour to sustain me, O
To plough and sow, to reap and mow, my father bred me early, Oโ€ (My father was a farmer, 1784)

Throughout his farming career, Robert dealt with economic crises, bad weather and failed harvests. Burns lamented the poor, unimproved, clayey ground and wrote of the greatness of areas such as Dumfriesshire, southern Argyll, Berwickshire and the Lothians on his travels. His lifetime coincided with the agricultural improvement which looked to modernise farming by creating enclosures, enhancing drainage and introducing crop rotations. Burns educated himself at 17 in these ideals and looked to use them in his agricultural career, but was hampered by limited capital and resources.

These sustainable soil management practices are still important today and at RBBM we are
focused on promoting soil health.

- Compost

- Wormery

- Pesticide

95% of our food comes from a combination of soil and water. These practices can help protect this vital connection.

How do you celebrate Saint Andrews Day? ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

Today, we celebrate, and revel in, all things Scottish! A paramount part of Scottish culture, Robert Burnsโ€™ love for his country shines through so many of his songs and poems but is perfectly epitomised in the below quote from a letter he wrote in 1787 to the Earl of Eglinton:

โ€œโ€ฆ[I] have all those national prejudices, which I believe glow peculiarly strong in the breast of a Scotchman. There is scarcely anything to which I am so fully alive as the honour and welfare of my country; and as a poet, I have no higher enjoyment than singing her sons and daughters.โ€

โ€œIt is thought to be a night when witches, devils, and other mischief-making beings are abroad on their baneful midnight errandsโ€ฆโ€ ๐ŸŽƒ

Happy Halloween! In 1785 Robert Burns wrote โ€œHalloweenโ€, one of his lengthier poems that describes a Halloween party held on the banks of the River Doon and the traditional activities enjoyed by those attending. Keenly aware that not all readers would be familiar with such customs, Burns wrote an accompaniment of footnotes (a rarity for the poet), thus giving us a wonderfully clear vision of how the holiday was celebrated in the time of the Bard. Three Halloween activities from the poem are listed below in Burnsโ€™ own words:

ยท โ€œBurning the nuts is a favourite charm. They name the lad and lass to each particular nut, as they lay them in the fire; and according as they burn quietly together, or start from beside one another, the course and issue of the courtship will beโ€

ยท โ€œTake a candle and go alone to a looking-glass; eat an apple before it, and some traditions say you should comb your hair all the time; the face of your conjugal companion, to be, will be seen in the glass, as if peeping over your shoulderโ€

ยท โ€œYou go out, one or more (for this is a social spell), to a south running spring, or rivulet, where "three lairds' lands meet," and dip your left shirt sleeve. Go to bed in sight of a fire, and hang your wet sleeve before it to dry. Lie awake, and, some time near midnight, an apparition, having the exact figure of the grand object in question, will come and turn the sleeve, as if to dry the other side of itโ€

Things have changed quite a bit! Will you be trying any of the Halloween amusements described by the Bard? Let us know below!

Delighted to be the venue for Little Art School this week.
Itโ€™s been fantastic to see so many people participating in their classes and our Museum visitors have been enjoying their exhibition!

Our week long celebration at Robert Burns Birthplace Museum NTS is halfway through and we couldn't be happier with how it's going. Each morning we are welcoming groups from the care homes and community groups our Dementia Arts Trust charity supports and each afternoon we are enjoying a lovely art party with our Little Art Stars school partners.

The joy and happiness our charity art classes bring is just wonderful. Today was very, very special. Drawing a cake brought back wonderful memories for one of our artists, she told us how happy it made her. Had us all in tears! It was a beautiful moment and a reminder that art can be such a powerful way to help people.

Our art exhibition is a huge success; every penny raised is going to support our Dementia Arts Trust and Little Art Stars charities. There are still paintings available to buy, come and visit us ! Open from 10am to 4pm Thurs and Friday, and from 10am to 2pm on Saturday. We'd love to welcome you ๐Ÿ˜Š

Some of our contributions include an electric vehicle charging point and ground source heat pumps. We take other environmental issues on board, such as maintaining areas for pollinators on our property, composting our garden waste and recycling in our cafรฉ and retail outlet.

Burns was a man who responded deeply to the environment which surrounded him in his native Ayrshire; his work is filled with references to nature and the countryside. On his travels too, around his native Scotland he took great interest in the majestic countryside he encountered. In his โ€˜Humble Petition of the Bruar Waterโ€™ (September 1787) he beseeches (on the part of the river itself) the Duke of Athole to indulge in some tree planting along its banks:



Would then my noble master please
To grant my highest wishes,Heโ€™ll shade my banks wi towโ€™ring treesAnd bonie spreading bushes.
Delighted doubly then, my lord,
Youโ€™ll wander on my banks,
And listen monie a grateful bird

Return you tuneful thanks.



It seems then that our bard was fully aware of the benefits of tree planting to wildlife!

The main events of the poem Tam o' Shanter take place 'By Aloway's auld haunted kirk'. With tales of the devil and the supernatural being associated with the kirk, Burns writes

'Tam saw an unco sight
Warlocks and witches in a dance
Nae cotillion brent new frae France
But hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys and reels
Put life and mettle in their heels.'
