Today we officially launch this new blogsite, yes we are going live! WELCOME aboard. Its entirely due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from readers of my other blog An Irish Craftworkers Good Life, about the eco-conscious lifestyle that we strive to live here on our farmlet, that we have been inspired to launch this new blog; Irish Sally Garden , which is all about living the sustainable dream in rural Ireland and sharing the knowledge of our experiences with like minded souls through consultation and workshops.
So a massive and sincere THANK YOU to all those who have been in touch, asking, encouraging, helping (Julie who designed our banner ) and admiring what we do. Now that we know so many others seek the same, we are going to try and help you get there too, by sharing what we have learned, and continue to learn every day. Yes we've made some great mistakes along the way ... so you don't have to repeat them!
All our courses are now listed with dates and prices and we look forward to hearing from you. If you quite fancy the look of a particular course, but the date doesn't suit you, drop us an email and we may well be able to run the course on a day that does suit you. We only need a minimum of two participants to run a course (max 4 or 5 on most), so perhaps you have a friend who'd also like to come along, or maybe we have another eager participant on a waiting list who would fill the gap. We are aiming to keep courses small and friendly, very informal, around the kitchen table with a cup of tea and a few biscuits, punctuated with a light home made lunch.
If you are interested in a particular course please get in touch and we can send you a course outline, and help you decide if its what you are looking for.
Courses include :
An Introduction to Rearing Piglets for the Freezer
An Introduction to Keeping Goats for Dairy or Meat
Constructing a Living Willow Sculpture
How to Identify the Most Appropriate Alternative Energy Technology for your Home
Feltmaking for Total Beginners
How to Create a Blog : One to One workshop
An Irish Craftworkers Good Life will continue as normal, posting about my craftwork and various day to day farm antics. Irish Sally Gardens will be totally farm and sustainable living orientated with a lot more detail and focus on how to implement ideas into your own lifestyle.
Wish us Luck!
