Guests enjoyed a lively morning starting with a talk from the centre’s founder Veronica O’Leary, who was recently honoured with a ‘Community Health Award’ at Wicklow’s People of the Year Awards. There were top tips on the health benefits of all things green including sprouts and wheatgrass from the Happy Pear’s grower Darragh Flynn and well-known nutritionist Isobel Jordan.
