“Between a Rock and a Hard Place, the Story of Caher Bridge Garden” with Carl Wright.

Removing, controlling and, in places, editing hazel scrub; finding, improving, and creating soil pockets for plants; building sympathetic walls and hard landscape and plant selection were all essential for Carl to carve a garden out of the limestone pavement surrounding his cottage near Fanore in the Burren.

This is a remarkable garden, a unique garden here in Ireland, one so perfectly in line with its surroundings and Carl is both a remarkable photographer and an excellent speaker so this is sure to be a most enjoyable talk.
