Ballin Temple is a magical spot nestled in the valley near the River Slaney. Since we moved here 23 years ago we’ve managed the place and grown vegetables without chemical sprays; we were officially organic for a few years. Very soon, we’re offering

  • FREE introduction to Grow Your Own on Feb 25 (online) – Tom will take you through what the course is about.
  • Grow Your Own, a course (in person in our garden, and online) that runs monthly from March 25 – Sept 30 to get into growing your own food. The monthly format allows you to keep at it and ask questions to personalise your food growing experience.
  • Summer yoga classes – dates will be announced after Easter. Can’t wait! Not on the yoga mailing list? Scroll to the bottom of the page and join my lovely yoga community.

We’re also selling a thoroughbred (no time!), square-bale hay, and have just gone live on the Wwoofer website. For details on all of that, check out the full Ballin Temple newsletter here.

Be a Nature Sanctuary Supporter

Years ago we had to stop salmon fishing as the population on the Slaney was in peril. Now we manage the river bank much less intensively but walkers love coming to enjoy nature. There are still costs involved in path clearing and other maintenance, so if you’d like to lend support, it is greatly appreciated.
