The Dominican Sisters established the Dominican Farm and Ecology Centre in 1998 on their 70-acre lands in Wicklow. It is an organic/biodynamic farm and Centre for Ecology and Spirituality. The name An Tairseach means threshold, suggesting a new beginning, an alternative and more sustainable way of working with the land and also a renewed relationship with the whole community of life, human and non-human.
The three main aspects of An Tairseach are:
· An Organic Farm and Farm shop.
· A Conservation Area suitable for Field Studies.
· A Centre for Ecology and Spirituality
