about me – I am an ongoing author, occasional broadcaster, regular weekend columnist for the Irish examiner and always an advocate of gardening for health & wellbeing.
I have a background in medicinal botany, nutritional science and horticultural therapy as well as holistic therapies, mindfulness facilitation and CBT counselling.
about the blog – The purpose of this blog is to give expression to the full potential living that tending a garden gifts – to look at it from a holistic viewpoint and to participate with it on physical and spiritual wavelengths.
I will write about how it heals and nourishes mind, body and spirit and how we can heal and nourish it in return.
The blog is predominately text. I prefer substance over style and I’m not a fan of blogs that are all gorgeous pintrest but of no interest. Not judging – just opting with mine, to get straight to the point.
That said – If you crave some holistic garden visuals then there is always @fiannsview on instagram.
……….. and if you like what you read and see then do check out the more in-depth content in my books. available in all good and few bad bookstores. Buy one if you can – the few cents royalty contributes to keeping this laptop charged.
NOTE ON COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS – This blog is more of an introduction to the topics I cover in my talks and books and a way to have a searchable database for conditions and remedies that I cover in those arenas. It is not set up to be a forum and I don’t check back over past posts to see who left a question or comment.
So apologies if I missed your question left last week under a four year old post – no offence meant, its just not on my radar (notifications off). I have answered some in the past when I stumbled upon them but can not continue to do so – This policy allows me to keep working on research, talks, books, articles and new posts.
However – If you do have a pressing question or are seeking to book me for a talk or event then it is easier to find me via facebook/messenger or by email to email@example.com.
