Future Orchard Cork

In my last post I told you I’d been to Cork to sing and meet up with old friends and bumped into a ceramicist called Martha Cashman.

Martha in turn took me to see Elaine Garde who has set up a community orchard.

She lives on the other side of the valley from where I was staying with my friend Pauline.



And it was Elaine who supplied us with a lovely veg box that included apple juice, homemade wild garlic pesto, pickled beetroot and rhubarb compote

When we rolled up Elaine had been picking blackberries with her gorgeous hound, Finnegan.
