ABOUT 'HOME GROUND'
The past year has seen most people spending large amounts of time in lockdown due to Covid-19. Those of us living in West Cork are very fortunate in that our 5 km limit will often include not only some built environment, but also gardens, open fields, coast, riverside and mountains.
Our immediate surroundings are not only our homes but have become our workplaces, our playgrounds, schools for our children and our walking/cycling/ jogging trails. This has caused us to look with renewed attention and appreciation at the microcosm of our locality, especially the natural world and the lives within that space.
Practices such as gardening, wild swimming and walking barefoot in nature have become more popular during this period as powerful ways that human beings can feel more ‘grounded’ and connect directly to the energy of the Earth, whilst receiving benefits to our physical health and mental wellbeing.
