The focus this year is on you! That’s right, this year we want our annual gathering to be all about the participants and our collective contributions - we are the people we need to hear from! So if you want to help with rural revitalisation, community supported agriculture, regenerative soil practices; if you want to better understand and inform others on threats and opportunities of digitisation on agriculture and rural spaces, all in the context of climate disruption, the Common Agriculture Policy, and meeting the Sustainable Development Goals - this event is for you.

Discover how a cooperative approach can strengthen and build more resilient and sustainable food systems, while at the same time supporting our communities and local economies. Case Studies, presentations and breakout discussions will be held on topics such as, Community Supported Agriculture, Food Hubs and other local supply and distribution systems.

Make a weekend of it and stay over. There will be film screenings, a convivial community meal with compelling conversations and music on the Saturday night. On the Sunday there will be an open day with walks and activities on Cloughjordan Community Farm.

If you want to create and support jobs in your area, help secure your food supply, are part of a community that wants to strengthen its local economy, or are a grower looking for a rewarding and potentially profitable way of supplementing your income, come to Cloughjordan where we’ll plot and plan it all together.

Organised by Cultivate and Cloughjordan Community farm, with support from NOTS, UCC’s Centre for Co-operative Studies, ARC2020, GROW Observatory, Night Orchard, Food Sovereignty Ireland, and CSA Ireland.

IN OUR HANDS: SEEDING CHANGE
Farm Meal, Film and Conversation.
Saturday 24th March 19.00 - 22.00

Join us for a convivial evening celebration of small scale farming and community food production in the context of climate disruption.
We stand on the brink, the future is uncertain, but the seeds of a better food system are quite simply … In Our Hands!

All change begins with a story and In Our Hands is the story of the farmers who, through hope, and hard-graft are refusing to be victims of history.

This evening get together after the Feeding Ourselves conference will include a screening of a documentary by the UK Landworkers’ Alliance and Black Bark Films, telling the inspiring story of real life farmers taking on the might of the industrial food system and taking back control of their lives, the land and their communities. This will be followed by a Community Farm meal, singing and poetry, and a compelling conversation with farmers and activists from the Extinction Rebellion movement.

19:00-20.00 Film
20.00-21.00 Shared Meal
21.00-23.00 Conversation with Talamh Beo and Extinction Rebellion.

We stand on a brink, but the future is still In Our Hands
