I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Extract from”The Summer Day” by Mary Oliver
The Men’s Shed has its facilities at Cill Dara Housing Association, Campion Crescent, Kildare Town.
The Shed is growing from strength to strength.
Why not drop in any time during the day from 11.00 a.m. onwards and learn about the many projects undertaken by the Men’s Shed. They have developed a variety of composting initiatives and will be happy to demonstrate how waste can be reduced by the establishment of leaf litters, a wormery, and variety of composting methods. One of their projects for Feile Bride is to set up a bug hotel in the grounds of Solas Bhride.
