The Hollies is a centre for learning in practical aspects of Sustainable Living Skills at Castletown Kinneagh, Enniskeane, West Cork.

For over twenty years we have been creating and developing several examples of this including cob and timber frame buildings, food gardens, dry sanitation systems and alternative land management.

Our aims and objectives are to learn and communicate about our ongoing work, including examples of promoting biodiversity and sustainable woodland use.

We offer training courses (see our course program) and are available for working with groups, schools and individuals using our gardens, woodland, wetland and buildings to inspire, inform and educate.

Nature connection features in many aspects of the work at the Hollies. This intrinsic connection can be engaging with nature, ourselves and each other, in a more holistic, respectful and peaceful manner.

The Hollies Centre for Sustainability has charitible status for it’s educational work
