Our Soils Matter - Irish conference on soils

Soil Conference in Ireland, to celebrate the UN International Year of Soils

This is the only conference in Ireland, this year, to celebrate the International Year of Soils.

Soil is our most treasured, valuable & precious resource - essential to all our lives. We grow our food in it & on it, build our homes from it & on it, drive our vehicles on it & with it, & yet, it is disappearing at an alarming rate, worldwide. Shine a light on just what we know, by hearing what just some of the Soil scientists are finding out, & what some of the specialists are learning from their own work.

Join us at Claregalway Castle, in county Galway, on Monday 6th July, at the Irish conference on soils, with keynote speakers, Dr Elizabeth Stockdale of Newcastle University, & Ian Tolhurst of Tolhurst Organics.

There are also planned, a number of panels speakers, many experienced in various strategies which are demonstrated to grow soil, in diverse Irish environments. Opportunities to question & debate, discuss & network, all in a beautiful & tranquil location in the West of Ireland - this is the only Irish event planned for this, the UN International Year of Soils.

So make the most of this opportunity, & come along to Soils Matter.

Find out more via NOTS website, or check out the Facebook pages of Mayo Organic Group, The Good Life Network, & of course, here on the Soil Matters page.

About The Mayo Organic Group

Garden and farm walks are organised throughout the year, as well as foraging and herbal walks, so members can witness ideas in action!

Our meetings are also a forum for selling produce. Members are encouraged to bring any produce they have for sale to any of our monthly meetings and advertise on our webring.
