  • Beschreibung


    My name is Conan. I live on my family's small farm in Magheracloone Co. Monaghan.
    Here we are carrying out ecosystem restoration work.
    I have practice regenerative agri-culture.
    Regenerative agriculture is crucial to curbing the negative environmental effects of the current food system, to building soil, to sequestering carbon and rebalancing the water, C and N cycles.
    I have a small flock of sheep and some poultry for regenerative grazing and soil building (and of course eggs) and a cat.
    There is also an orchard and food garden.

    As part of this work we have also formed a cooperative group with others in the area. We envision a more connected world where ecosystems are restored and thriving. Humans are working in cooperation with wider nature and one another and we all have the opportunity to explore our full human potential.
    We are also a part of the global network of Ecosystem Restoration Camps. We are planning to host camps for ecosystem restoration and are building an education centre for this work nearby.

    There is a local craft tradition inspired by Italian lace that originated in the 19th century, Carrickmacross Lace was made famous by its inclusion in the wedding dresses of Princesses, Lace was introduced to Ireland in 1820 and lacemaking was learned by local women so they could earn some extra income. This tradition is maintained today, with beautiful lace, still hand-worked, by craftspeople at the Market Square gallery in the town.

    There is some cleaning and painting to be done.
    You can learn about permaculture design as it is ongoing.
