FARMERS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

OUR GUEST SPEAKER
Brigid is the Project Manager for the Farming for Nature project since June 2018. She works five mornings a week. Prior to this initiative, she was the manager of the landscape charity Burrenbeo Trust for 9 years, biodiversity officer for Clare County Council and a project officer on numerous conservation projects abroad for the previous 10 years.
Brigid comes from a suckler and tillage farm in County Cork. You can listen here to a podcast on how she became involved in conservation and the background to Farming for Nature.
You can find out more about Farming for Nature here.
As always at our events, an important part will be the
Q&A session which will allow full participation by those attending.
While admission is FREE to this event, registration is NECESSARY as places are strictly limited. Please secure your place by booking here.
There is widespread awareness of the environmental damage that can be caused by the wrong type of farming; however there isn’t much discussion of those that are doing a great job farming for nature, about the positive stories, meaning we don’t have many good role models. Encouraging farmers to feel that they are part of the solution, not just the problem, is the first step in a long journey which will require a lot of financial and technical support, new partnerships and new visions.
This talk forms part of Green Foundation Ireland’s project,
“Our Soil Underfoot – Protecting our underground life”.
