Tickets to Grow it Yourself Ireland Conference… win them.
As the interest in home-produced food reaches fever pitch, a new organisation called GIY Ireland is aiming to inspire people to get growing and give them the knowledge they need to do so successfully.
On September 12th 2009 Waterford Institute of Technology will be the venue for the launch of this unique organisation which aims to establish food growers groups in every town and county in Ireland. GIY networks aims to recreate the camaraderie of allotment growing for back-garden vegetable growers by getting them together on a regular basis to talk, learn from each other and exchange tips, war-stories and produce.
Keynote speakers at the conference include Minister for Food and Horticulture Trevor Sargent TD, Ballymaloe Cookery School founder Darina Allen, GIY Ireland’s Michael Kelly and Will Sutherland from the John Seymour School of Self-sufficiency.
There will also be a series of afternoon workshops covering a range of topics including, health & nutrition, baking, permaculture, seed-saving, and allotments & community gardens.
Tickets cost €35 and include a 3 course lunch of mouth-watering local produce.
