This year-long project began in the summer with early morning walks by the canal in Monasterevin. The weather was idyllic – warm, blue sky, bird song, and a pretty little damselfly. I collected wild plants to paint and was made welcome at Willoughbys in Monasterevin, where I painted and talked with the public about the project.
The project was commissioned by Monasterevin Tidy Towns and partly funded by Kildare County council. The video was created by Nuala Madigan, an Environmental education officer with the Irish Peatland Conservation Council.
