  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four, two adults, two kids aged 6 & 3yrs old living on 40acres of woodland with a river and lake in Co. Clare. We are both medical herbalists and experienced medicinal plant growers. We moved to this land a year ago and are now focusing on re-establishing our clinic, teaching and herb nursery here. Currently we are building a timber roundhouse from trees in our own woodland. Ask us for our website and facebook - for more information about us and our work.
