Summary:

Based on a four acre small holding with vegetable and fruit gardens and a mature woodland, we run educational courses on the environment and related themes as well as hosting a community garden and volunteers to the gardens. We are in the process of starting a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and we’re also looking forward to becoming Seed Guardians for ISSA (Irish Seed Savers Association).
