Making a meadow with Paul Cullen

In this workshop, Paul will demonstrate the practical method of creating a patch of wild flower meadow to create habitat for wildlife.  This is a hands-on workshop suitable for anyone who wants to create their own wildflower meadow or pass on the skills learned to others.

Paul Cullen has worked for over 10 years as a professional gardener and tree surgeon. For the last 4 years he has also been caretaking Páirc ‘n Tobair in Rosscarbery. Páirc ‘n Tobair is 25 acres of land that belonged to the Sisters of Mercy. Over 20 years the land has been transformed from a green field site into a biodiversity safe haven. The land is now in the care of Green Sod Ireland and the work started by the nuns is continuing on. The site consists of native woodlands, meadows, ponds and a community garden. As well as being a biodiversity haven, the space is also used for education, to host workshops and functions as a social and therapeutic garden.

The workshop is free but booking is essential as spaces are limited.  For more information email –biogfestirl@gmail.com
