Brigit’s Garden is a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity in Ireland, CHY 20053758. The project was set up by Jenny Beale out of her passion for nature and education:
‘We live in a world where many people’s lives are increasingly detached from the natural world. My dream for Brigit’s Garden was to create a place where people of all ages could connect with nature in beautiful surroundings and find inspiration, delight, tranquillity and learning as they do so.
Theming the Gardens on the Celtic festivals is a natural extension of this vision as the Celtic calendar and stories provide a rich source of symbolism in relation to nature. This symbolism still has a strong resonance in the 21st century, and I hope Brigit’s Garden will play its own small part in helping to re-connect humankind with nature.’
Brigit’s Garden is run by the Board of Trustees, in cooperation with the Operations Director and staff team. Our mission statement, values and aims are as follows:
