Marina Kesso


marina kessoMarina naturally progressed to studying Herbal Medicine through growing medicinal plants and producing organic foods while living a self sufficient lifestyle on a smallholding.  As a result of travels in India and New Zealand Marina developed a wider interest in food generally and particularly in nutrition.

This culminated in her studying Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine and her consequent desire to pass on her knowledge of herbs and food.  She now continues to grow medicinal plants in north Sligo where she makes many of her own herbal medicines and runs workshops teaching other herbalists how to grow herbs. Marina is co-founder and herb grower for HerbBís.  This is an installation piece created to promote the use of medicinal plants and host public workshops and talks on herbal medicine by Irish herbalists.
