Elaine offers creative biodiversity Projects which link Our Environment to Our Heritage by developing school gardens which include Ogham stone zodiacs. Real connections are made about understanding biodiversity as Children learn about an old Irish alphabet in which each letter is a different native tree. Her outdoor classroom approach, working with natural materials helps children discover more about themselves and their environment.

She is founder of the award winning environmental project Future Orchard, a sculpture graduate of Corks Crawford and holds a Masters of Social Science. She is registered with The Crafts Council, The Teachers Council and can also be booked for workshops via Cork ETBs tutor panel.
