Social Enterprise in Organics
In the nineties and early 2000s I was a Trustee of The Organic Centre in North Leitrim. We pioneered organic horticulture in the most marginal soils of Ireland. It now trains people both in organic horticulture and in a wide variety of sustainable crafts from stone wall building to willow sculpture.
As a trustee with business management experience I worked to restructure and empower the management of the company and succeeded in refinancing the company to enable it to continue and grow. We sourced commercial ethical funds that were attracted by a case that presented both business and social outcomes. Tour The Organic Centre.
