I get to be one of those procrastinators sometimes when I say ... I'm blogging. I read a story the other day about the fear of being heard. Do you really have something worthwhile to say, and so, I have put on the back burner, for fear that what I have to say is not worth reading or hearing. It's been a journey of a year from 2014 to 2015. I'll be writing more on that on other forums such as Medium.com and in other publications.
This year we are embarking on the Wild Garden Tour with Rick Darke. You can hear one of his recent lectures above and really get to know about Rick's ethos of gardening and for life. It's one I share and care about. It's a great fit for my company to be on this journey in search of Ireland's Wild Gardens, whether they are past, present or in a creative juncture of their existence, we will get to explore Ireland's gardens in an in depth, learning tour, with one of the world's best writer's and conservationist, so that we too, can learn to garden well, with the earth, our regions, our own back gardens at the forefront of our minds.
If we start the conversations and really take the time to HAVE those conversations about what is going to make us more responsible participants in this world, then we will make a difference in our lives and in the lives of those we care about.
Our journey will start in Dublin and we'll traverse Ireland's four corners, from wild gardens to formal gardens; from forests to managed reforestation; to back garden biodiversity to the wilds of the Atlantic Way. We hope you can join us on tour and in conversation.
If you can't come on tour, join us at Powerscourt on June 10, 2015 for an informative talk on Wild Gardens with Rick Darke. You can find details on the tour on the Garden page as well on Powerscourt House & Garden's own website.
Please feel free to call or write for any information. The January Newsletter is out and our list of gardens to visit is growing daily!
We hope you can join us!
