Organic way of life

In 2010 I traveled to Ireland with Glenisk Yogurt and met Jan Boons and Monique Shreven on their goat farm near Portumna, Ireland. I fell in love with their family and their adorable goats and most importantly, their organic way of life. While I was there, Monique showed me an ingenious way to plant strawberries so they do not get invaded with snails; she raises them up and puts them in an old pig trough.

Never in my life would I consider a pig trough beautiful, yet sitting up against Monique’s Irish stone house, I think the trough is simply gorgeous and offers a real solution to their constant slug and snail problem. What a brilliant way to reuse something old and make it new in the garden.
