Date: 04/12/2020

Time: 7.00pm

Location: Online

Description: Irish Seed Savers Talk : Seed Sovereignty and Food Security

Friday 4th December at 7pm

Food sovereignty is a topic of growing interest, given Ireland’s reliance on food and food seed imports. Whether issues with trade (Brexit), climate change and weather impacts in countries from where our food comes, to natural disasters, and now pandemics, the need to build local resilience in our food supply must first come by building resilience of locally grown seed. Through their work over 30 years Irish Seed Savers connect people to the importance of seed in the food cycle, as well as build skills for others to grow their own food and protect Ireland’s precious environment in these ever-changing times.

Come join their talk to learn more about their work, and how you too can do more to support locally grown food and building community resilience.
