Events in 2010

We are still trying to get the 2010 catalogue to the printer. All going well, it will be tomorrow. It has focussed my mind on what events we want to hold on the farm next year, as that goes into the catalogue. And so we have decided to have an 'Open Day' on Sunday June 6th 2010 and a 'Seedy Weekend' over the August bank holiday weekend. We will have a beginners seed saving workshop on 31st of July, and on Sunday 1st August, a workshop on beginning plant breeding. Please email madsmckeever@eircom.net to book. If you want to buy a workshop voucher for someone special we can do that, at no extra cost. Cost €30 per day. (2days €50). Participants are welcome to camp on the farm. That leaves Monday the 2nd open for another event. Anyone want to run a seed related workshop? Or, would it be a nice day to have a gathering of seed savers who just want to hang out. What do you think?

And by the way, the cabbage is 'Gortahork' and we haven't got seed off it yet, ISSA probably do though. Hopefully we will this time next year.


  1. Look forward to seeing the new catalogue! :)

  2. Me too! It has gone off to the printer, finally.

  3. Wow. I missed this one :( Is there anyway I can still get it?
