National Organic Training Skillnet and Organic Growers of Ireland bring you a farm walk on Tuesday 26th June 2012 at 7pm in Cloughjordan Community Farm, Co Tipperary
All farm walk attendees are asked to assemble at the Coach House just opposite the green area in the centre of the village. Non members of the OGI will be asked for a donation on the night.
Cloughjordan Community Farm is in its second year of veg growing on its 7 acre site. Although not registered organic (produce is not sold it goes to the 60 members) produce is grown in a Bio-dynamic and biological way looking at replacing materials that are not available (reams method) and boosting the biology to cycle the nutrients along with the green manures. There is one tunnel that has been up for a year a second has just been erected and there is space for another tunnel for seed saving.
