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. And from the garden too we may harvest foods and herbs that bolster health or help tackle illness or specific conditions.
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.
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 – and update regularly. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
