Naduir Garden & Herb Day

America Village Apothecary - Naduir

Last Saturday I had the great fortune to spend my afternoon at Naduir. I usually visit Ciara and Josef's magical space they call home and work every Monday morning for my ritual yoga class with Ciara - THE BEST way to start my week!

Naduir is one of those places that you go to and are never really sure if you truly want to leave. It has an energy that seems to call you by name, welcome you and mould itself around your space whilst allowing you to become one with it's own - Naduir is this Irish word for nature, most appropriate - A more natural, holistic space, you would be hard pressed to find. 

The focus for Saturday's events was a 'Garden & Herb Day'. The few of us who were there from the beginning chatted over the table of herbs, whilst preparing and experimenting with herb salts, stock's, paste's, butters, cure's and cordial's. We had tea and cake (a delicious buckwheat and berry delight that Ciara had made). We made impromptu remedies to stem the bleeding from Josef's cut finger. People came and went. We spent time in the garden, harvesting more herbs, weeding and generally soaking up the sun and playing with the earth! 

Magic - Intoxicating scents, beautiful surroundings and great company - If only every Saturday afternoon could be like this... 

You will find some of the recipe's that we experimented with on the Naduir website.
