Marina Kesso

Marina naturally progressed to studying Herbal Medicine through growing medicinal plants, organic vegetables, and producing organic foods while living a self sufficient lifestyle on a smallholding. This culminated in her studying Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine and her consequent desire to pass on her knowledge of herbs and food.  After her studies Marina gained experience working alongside doctors in a Naturopathic hospital in India before setting up practice in Sligo. Marina has been growing medicinal plants, harvesting, drying and making different herbal medicine preparations for over 12 years. Marina gives talks and runs weekend courses on the farm in Cliffoney teaching the public about nutrition, herbal medicine, growing herbs and making herbal remedies. She feels that educating the public about herbal medicine is an integral part to her role as a herbalist. Her expertise as a herbalist has been called on for appearances on television programmes for RTÉ, BBC Northern Ireland and TG4.
