About Jacksmill

Jacksmill is a biodiversity project set within a regenerated family farm and repurposed sawmill. It provides office, studio and allotment spaces to a community of people striving to live, work and grow local within the global village.

In 2014 Caroline and Huw O’Toole returned to Huw’s home place Jacksmill – named in honour of his parents Jack and Silvia – in North County Wicklow. They set about regenerating Jacksmill into two main aspects Hub13 and the Forest Garden.

Hub13 is the uniquely designed workplace which Huw repurposed from the disused family sawmill and it now contains office, co-working and studio spaces. It is conveniently located adjacent to Exit 13 of the N11, between Greystones and Wicklow Town in beautiful County Wicklow.

The Forest Garden is the regenerated pastoral land surrounding Hub13 which has been transformed into a biodiversity project and contains native Irish trees and hedgerows planted alongside tree guilds, a tree nursery and various allotments.
