OGI Farm Walks
Category: Farm walks
Join the OGI’s Small Growers Network farm walk which will focus on growing crops for seed. We will start the day in the gardens at Irish Seed Savers Association, an organisation that have been working relentlessly to protect Ireland’s food crop heritage for over 30 years. In the afternoon, Jason Horner, Irish Seed Sovereignty coordinator, original OGI Small Growers Network coordinator, semi retired market gardener and Irish seed producer will give us a tour of his farm, Leen Organics. Jason has been growing organically for markets for over 30 years so has a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges of combining market gardening and seed saving.
