Carraig Dúlra Organic & Permaculture Training Centre
Founded by social entrepreneurs Mike & Suzie Cahn in 2006, Carraig Dúlra works in the educational tourism sector. Our goal is to help communities become more resilient and sustainable, through hands-on, practical training and skills sharing.
Our demonstration site, 4 acres of supposedly “marginal” farmland on the side of Carrick Mountain in Glenealy, is home to an abundance of vegetable and fruit varieties, along with examples of “no dig” gardening, low-technology systems and natural building. We use Permaculture as a design approach to everything we do, but you don’t need to know what Permaculture is, to appreciate the practical examples and learn something that you can apply at home, even if you don’t have a garden!
Some examples of past training courses include:
* Natural Building
* Organic chemical-free food growing (small and medium scale)
* Skills Exchange
* Natural beekeeping
