We are delighted to announce the draft programme for our  second Wild Food Summer School in September. We have changed the format this year with lots of new additions. More foraging, more great speakers, films, music,  Artisan Food stalls, Cheese making and  events for children. We also have a retrofitted ambulance  giving workshops on Up Cycling, Composting etc., facilitated by the Community Reuse Network Ireland (CRNI). There will be additions , changes and slight alterations to the programme but not too many!
