    the story of the producer

    Connecting to Nature

    Biodiversity & Wellbeing - feeling closer to the wider natural world is important for us all.

    Connecting to Nature aims to raise happiness levels by introducing the birds and the bees to households nationwide. They produce Irish Native Wildflower Seeds on their own sites in Faithlegg, Co Waterford, and the mixtures are curated to provide both food for wildlife and colour throughout the year.

    Their ethos is simple; being connected with nature is about feeling close to the wider natural world, it’s a relationship that helps us feel good. Sowing wildflowers and feeding birds are a wonderful way to feel closer to nature and bring wildlife closer to you.

    The business is the brainchild of Julie Power, whose Waterford-based family have been in the seed business for six generations, initially established in 1859 as Power Seeds which operated from Ballinakill, Dunmore Road and later from Glenville where the remnants of the old seed plant can still be seen today.

    “You don’t have to be in the countryside to connect with nature, all you have to do is create an environment that consistently attracts birds and bees”.
