Sinéad is a botanist, ecologist and herbalist with many years experience of working with children and adults, delivering walks and classroom workshops. Typically, workshops involve the use of identification keys with hand lenses to name plants, and using fresh and dried plant material in hands on art and craft work. Field trips can be organised to woodlands, bogs, grasslands and coastal habitats, which can include plant and habitat identification using field guides and landscape management for older children. Sinéad also organises workshops and field trips around the historical and current medicinal use of common Irish native plants.
"Sinead was very well organised for her visit to our school. She arrived last week to give a preliminary visit to explore the surroundings and speak to the class teacher and organiser. Her lesson was very informative and pitched well. She interacted very well with the children. Each child was thrilled to have a 'magic wand' of their own to design and bring home! We were extremely pleased with her visit and would like to invite her to our school in the New Year!"
"We had an excellent day surveying our local river and investigating the plant and animal life in the habitat and surrounding area."
"Sinead is an excellent Heritage Expert who has being coming to our school (under this scheme) over the last number of years. She interacts exceptionally well with the children at all class levels and instills her knowledge in a natural fun manner. She is extremely well prepared and is a joy to work with." - Scoil Mhuire Corofin, Clare
