REGENERATIVE & COOPERATIVE APPROACHES TO FOOD
Saturday 7th March - with additional Friday evening and Sunday events.
WeCreate Workspace & Cloughjordan Community Farm, Cloughjordan Ecovillage, Tipperary, Ireland
This is the annual gathering of regenerative farmers & CAP policy wonks, cooperative & community food advocates, food sovereignty & climate activists, and anyone with an interest in good food, good farming and community revitalisation.
Collaborative Distribution (Building the Solidarity Economy, Food Coops, Digital Platforms, CSAs)
Policy Matters (CAP, EU Green Deal, Farm to Fork, CAP Strategic Plan for Ireland )
Food Sovereignty (Justice, Seed Saving, Food Poverty, Food Deserts)
Better Farming (Regenerative, Biological, Syntropic, Organic, and High Nature Value farming)
There are loads of problems with how farming and food function, but there are solutions too - so let’s get to know and grow them! We can make food distribution work better for farmers and citizens, via savvy digital platforms, food hubs, coops and more. Farming and rural Ireland are in many ways shaped by policy and funding supports, but too few benefit while we hurtle headlong into climate and biodiversity collapse - let’s fix this!
Let’s get deep into the details too, with co-learning and training sessions for those who want to step up or ramp up their work in these important areas, including coops, CSA, regenerative farming and more.
