Our provider of organic vegetables and fruit, Stephen, had invited us to visit his farm/garden. It was a really sweet summer afternoon (after weeks of cold rain) and East Clare looked its very best and greenest as we drove up along Lough Derg to Whitegate.

Several of Stephen’s customers showed up during the afternoon and various organic foods tasted and appreciated while conversing about life, the universe and everything.
It’s amazing to see how much can be done with a piece of land. If more people engaged in this practice, Ireland’s dependence on imports would be substantially reduced, it would be better for the environment and better for all people living here.
It is time to drop the idea of ornamental lawns, work the land and make food.
