Trees are an important, stable source of food for bees and other pollinators providing thousands of flower heads all in one place.
An Gáirdín is an ecological and educational center for sustainability whose main focus is to learn how to live again through “making again a garden of this place”. Being a diverse, large and organic garden, the principles of permaculture were introduced to its management last year (2017); everything converges towards An Gáirdín to grow into a permaculture demonstration site.
A 10×20m growing area is already in place. As the land is extremely wet, it would benefit from being redesigned in a way that would maximize the drainage.
What would Permaculture be without its teachers – those people that are able to pass on this incredibly diverse and rich phenomenon, that is so hard to put into words and nevertheless has touched and transformed thousands and thousands of people worldwide? It is the teachers that make permaculture accessible and allow the spark to move on to touch more people’s lives, in the workshops and trainings that they are running.
