Working with Farmers for Sustainable Ecotourism
Siobhán Sloane, Essential Food Trails, Ireland
One of the best things about creating and running Essential Food Trails is the people I meet along the way. The farmers and producers and innovative people working towards rural sustainability.
Like many of those I have met, I have had a varied career up to this point. I have worked in large and small organisations in Dublin City, in kiwifruit orchards in New Zealand, vast fruit farms in Australia, before returning to Ireland to train as a yoga instructor and study for a degree in Ireland’s Heritage, Culture and Environment. All of these experiences have led me to live and work in the west of Ireland.
