Upcoming Events in Cloughjordan

1. Thursday, April 28th, The Methodist Hall, Cloughjordan, 7.30 to 9.30pm

Public meeting: The Climate Crisis: What Next?

The international negotiations on a global climate treaty seem to be making very little progress. After a review of the current situation and the reasons for it, the meeting will explore alternative proposals for dealing with the situation which do not simply involve restricting fossil fuel use. Speakers will include David Healy, a former ministerial policy adviser, Richard Douthwaite and Brian Davey of Feasta, and Gundula Azeez, a former policy adviser to the Soil Association.

Admission: €5. Enquiries to info@feasta.org or to 086 364 2728.

Public meeting: What organic and low-input has to offer growers, their customers and the planet

A joint event with Feasta, (the Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability) and IOFGA, the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association. Chaired by Dr. Sinead Neiland, Chairperson of IOFGA

Speakers will include Gundula Azeez, a former policy adviser to the Soil Association, Martin Peck, who raises sheep organically in Wales, and Joe Condon, who raises cattle organically in South Tipperary, selling the beef direct to the public. The evening has been planned to suit people who are already farming organically or who are thinking of doing so. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion.
