An Artichoke Project

Sean Brennan

Both sides of my family are from Northern Ireland, I can remember my great grandmother singing songs about the troubles and her reminiscing about the beautiful coast near Derry. I am incredibly grateful for this land and the people and the opportunity to help build a 'temple' honoring our loved ones in this way.
