I have a market stall called The Filling Station where you can bring your empty bottles and get them refilled with a range of around 25 different eco-friendly household cleaning products and some food stuffs. My aim is to provide an opportunity for customers to re-use single-use plastic containers ad infinitum, thus reducing plastic waste. I also look out for the most common plastic objects found in land fill and the oceans, and try to replace them with bio-degradable materials. Bamboo toothbrushes, wooden combs, cardboard pens with refills, wooden washing-up brushes, and cotton hankies, are some of the products to be found on my Zero Waste table. I love Nature with a passion, and I try to put a seasonal treat for Nature on my table at all times, such as seed bombs, bee hotels, bat houses, and comfrey and nettle liquid plant feed. All my packaging is either recycled or bio-degradable. I also sell a few lovely works of ceramic art made of waste clay and recycled glass! I’m always on the look-out for new ideas and compostable products, so if you know of any, make sure to come by the market stall and tell me about them!

Jane’s Garden

This design is about bringing more wildlife and beauty to Jane Forrester’s garden in Enniskeane, while creating a resilient and low maintenance environment.

As she lives peacefully her 78th year on Earth on a half-acre land where where she occasionally still crafts tableware in her pottery workshop,, Jane finds it every time more time-consuming and vain to spend such a big part of her time on cutting that annoying grass.that stifles her yummy vegetables. She wants to wake up to the song of the birds, contemplate colorful flowers and trees, and grow edible plants without too much effort.

The design as thought by István Márkuly basically consists in turning everything inside out for a resilient and auto–regenerative landscape to emerge :

On the highest section of the garden, a pond couple with low-maintenance aquaculture will be the center for fertility in the land : as nutrients accumulate in the pond and leach into the ground, the flow will be regulated by swales which fit the existing shape of the land and allow a slow circulation of nutrients through the soil for them to be the most taken advantage of by the trees.

Also on most of the garden area, the soil will be turned inside-out for a depth of 30-cm, under which chipped wood branches currently stacked at the back of the place will be laid down. Trees will be densely planted on this surface, ans as they establish their roots to feed from the deepest layers of the soil,wild flower seeds will turn the place into a highly colorful meadow until the trees get old enough to make the ecosystem turn into a woodland.

Some of the trees will aim to be harvested for their fruit, as some already existing artichoke plants who actually enjoy woodland environments will keep on growing there.

All of the annual vegetables will be grown closer to the cottage together with a herb garden, making it easier for for Jane to take care of them, and the current vegetable garden will be turned into a nursery with perennial beds. We already covered most of the surface with cardboard to stifle the grass so that we can soon delimitate the growing beds and create paths;

We start the heavy work next Tuesday (20/03) with the digger and all of the big tools, and a community tree planting is set up for next Friday (23/03) from 11 AM to 2 PM, you are welcome to join if you wish to give a hand ! 🙂

Will Dahm/ A Garden to Play In

This was a garden that was situated in the back of the Methodist Church in Clonakilty, the brief was to create a large space for functions and children from a Montessori group to play in. It is also intended that children can sow and grow food and flowers here as part of their first introduction to gardening.

Clonakilty Community Garden

The Clonakilty Community Garden is a social innovation and education space, where knowledge and resources are shared for food growing, community integration and social inclusion. The project has been in existence for 3 years, and has developed from a green field site to a mature garden and social space at the centre of Clonakilty. This project is to develop the garden further to create a Community Sustainable Innovation Hub which will demonstrate best-practice in smart natural food production, sustainable energy, biodiversity, soil protection and water conservation.

Istvan Markuly

Istvan Markuly

Istvan was born and grew up in the beech forest in Hungary and have always been interested in forests and water – he always felt connected with the aquaculture where he fished.

He studied painting and art in Hungary, and ran a building company until he started travelling in 2001 and was introduced to Permaculture in 2003.

He continued travelling and got involved in Permaculture farming projects, living and travelling in community, harvesting fruit, and organic farming. He experienced working in the European climates from northern cold humid to southern Mediterranean.

Since 2006 he has been based in Ireland where he developed a property service business specialising in sustainable house retrofitting and land management to provide better living spaces for clients and training for employees.

He lived off-grid, providing my own energy, water & food security – this gave him more connection to the land and to his local community and came to realise the importance of educating people, in particular from a community perspective.

This led him to see the needs of the local community and immersed himself in local voluntary community development projects; waste management, water harvesting, food waste and food rescue, community forestry, fairshare favour exchange, community gardens, and school gardens.

He started to give¬¬¬¬¬¬ talks & provided workshops through local groups such as G.I.Y, local educational systems, and the community projects.

Currently he is working on establishing and growing the permaculture network in West Cork, Ireland and initiating permaculture waves across the country!

He provides Permaculture design consultancy supporting growers, restaurants, private properties, hotels, farms, community development to become more productive and independent.

His passion is to integrate Permaculture design into the education systems through identifying needs and supporting connections.

His direction and focus at the moment is teaching permaculture and deeper understanding of soil biology as a part of the overall design.

He has taken PDC’s and Permaculture workshops internationally, and continues to grow his knowledge.
