Getting 2017 off to a flying start by planting 1,200 more elder saplings. Plants are strong and conditions are good so things are progressing nicely..
June 2017 - Some of the beautiful blossoms in our elder orchard.
Martina has been doing a part-time Diploma in Speciality Food Production in University College Cork since September 2016. It involved a lot of driving, over-night stays in Cork, field-trips, and lots and lots of studying, exams and assignments. It all finally paid off for her when she graduated in November with First Class Honours.
December 2017 - snow covers the newly-planted and older elder trees, while the bugs are snug (as a bug!!) and cosy in our Origin Green hibernation station.
