Welcome to Danu's Irish Herb Garden

This is a Garden of Healing, Magic, Plant Wisdom, Herbal Medicine and practical living. Here I work to create a beautiful garden dedicated to the Goddess Danu. I grow healing herbs, trees, shrubs, flowers, fruits and vegetables organically, and attempt to provide for myself and others. This is the home of the Hawthorn Academy of Healing Herbs, where I offer on-line and in-person herbal courses and workshops which enable and empower you to take responsibility for your own health and well-being. I also offer a transpersonal course, the Wise Woman Way training which can bring you into a deeper, more spiritual, relationship with plants.

About terri

Hello - my name is Terri Conroy and I live here at Danu’s Irish Herb Garden. I grew up in an industrial town in England and lived there for several years before returning home to Connemara in the west of Ireland.
I am a teacher, a herbalist and a kinesiologist and I have named my garden after the Irish Mother Goddess, Danu. Danu’s Irish Herb Garden is a garden of Healing, Magic, Plant Wisdom, Herbal Medicine and practical living.

Hawthorn Academy

The objective of the Hawthorn Academy of Healing Herbs is to empower people to become self-reliant, self responsible and self-sufficient in caring for their health and the health of their families. There is also great encouragement to forge a deeper connection with the Sacredness of Nature and our Plant Relations. In this way, these courses are truly holistic and take into consideration the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of all.
It can be argued that herbal medicine is a radical way to personal empowerment and health on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This is what I believe. Working with plants also enables us to connect more closely to the Planet, our Mother Earth, en route to good health.

Wise Woman way

Becoming a Wise Woman is every woman’s destiny, if she chooses it. Therefore, to step onto the initiatory path that is Wise Woman Training is to make the decision to build a relationship with the plants. Not only that, but to also reconnect to the Goddess and to allow the Divine Feminine and the Goddess to be immanent.
Travelling the Wheel of the Year can really help one to reconnect with Nature, the Goddess, the plants and can change your life for the better.

Herbal Healing

Plants are powerful healers and when combined with cleanliness, good food, adequate sleep and plenty of rest they are invaluable and effective.


Stress inevitably has an effect on all our body’s systems. Kinesiology treats you holistically, working on the premise that a balanced body is a healthy body.

Rites of Passage

Shamanic Rites of Passage enable us to mark life changing events in our lives and grow into the people we are meant to be.
