“Connection with nature is highly therapeutic.
Doonmoon Care farm offers a space where people recovering from depression or anxiety can recover – people need space to figure out how to live.”
BNest Incubator Programme 2016/2017 Participant
The use of a farm environment to help people recover from mental illness is an age old idea born anew through the growing practice of Care Farming.
Dermot Carroll and his team believe reconnecting with nature is a great, but underestimated way to regain the mental balance. They hope that their project will help transform the lives of many service users and their families.
Doonmoon is a family farm, beautifuly located in county Limerick.
Doonmoon Care Farm doesn’t solely rely on donations – Dermot and his team grow and sell seasonal flowers.
