National Organic Training Skillnet is teaming up with a group of innovative farmers from around the country to provide a series of 11 unique “Biological Farm Walks” throughout summer and autumn 2019.
These will be highly-informative and demonstrative farm walks with some of Ireland’s most creative farmers working in the Biological / Regenerative Agriculture sector. Learn from innovative cereal crop growers, pioneering horticulturalists, ground-breaking beef farmers, and more. These farmers will talk about what has worked and what hasn’t worked for them, as well as their thoughts on a wide range of methods used in regenerative agriculture, organic growing, soil health, and biological farming.
NOTS are offering a “Season Ticket” for just €40 which allows you access to all 11 walks –pricing them at less than €4 per event. You can pick and choose which walks suit you – with no obligations. Click on this link for booking information: https://nots.ie/courses/biological-farm-walks-2019/
