- Free Talk
October 21, 2015
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Do you have an interest in Co-operative projects?
Davie Philip will introduce how a cooperative approach can strengthen and build more resilient and sustainable food systems, while at the same time supporting our communities and local economies.
He will tell the Cloughjordan Ecovillage story as well as introducing CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), Community Kitchens, Food Hubs, and other emerging collaborative food systems.
The evening will include a facilitated conversation on the potential of feeding ourselves.
Davie will be bringing some of the home-grown produce from Cloughjordan to provide a light bite for participants. Please feel free to bring along something yourself to share with the group, if you want.
