Welcome to Episode 3 of the Nurtured by Nature podcast. Today I’m delighted to be joined in conversation by the lovely Molly Ellis. Molly is the wildlife artist behind the brand the Wild Felter, based in the south of Ireland.
During this inspiring episode we pondered how sometimes the most important thing isn’t knowing the answer but simply being prepared to ask the question. Molly shared how her love and relationship with nature only began in her thirty’s but has now shaped her family, business and home, where she has utilised renewable energy, the rather un-glamorous sounding post-consumer waste packaging and created a haven for wildlife by allowing nature to take the lead in re-wildling her garden.
