An Tairseach, is the Irish word for threshold and it suggests a new beginning, an alternative and more sustainable way of working with the land as well as a renewed relationship with the whole community of life, human and non-human.
Three main aspects of An Tairseach are:
- A Centre for Ecology and Spirituality
- An Organic Farm and farm shop
- A Conservation Area suitable for field studies
