On Monday of this week, I was lucky enough to find myself in Wicklow – a rare trip across the country to The Garden of Ireland.
Over the Wicklow Gap I went, down through Laragh, with its wonderful broadleaf and well-spaced conifer forests and on towards Glenealy, to the beautiful and serene organic farm at Carraig Dúlra.
On their plot up on the hill, with impressive Red Kites soaring overhead, Mike and Suzie Cahn deliver organic farming training, specialising in how to grow fruit and vegetables. Indeed, my friend Tina Pommer, from Leitrim, will be giving a talk and walk on mushrooms over there sometime this coming autumn.
I was there to deliver an awareness course in Leave No Trace. I had a lovely day and would really recommend getting up to Carraig Dúlra, taking a practical, educational and, above all, interesting course in the outdoors of whichever type you prefer yourself. Mike and Suzie are excellent hosts, so you’ll have a great day.
