The winner of the Farming For Nature Award 2018 will be announced at the Burren Winterage School on the 27th October 2018 in Kinvara, Co.Galway. The Burren Winterage School is an annual conference on High Nature Value Farming. This year’s theme is ‘Farming For Nature’. It will held on the 25th-27 October in Gort and Kinvara, Co.Galway.
This year’s Burren Winterage School is an extended and enriched affair, as befits a subject as diverse and fascinating as this year’s theme of ‘Farming for Nature’. Co-ordinated by the Burrenbeo Trust, in co-operation this year with Teagasc, and supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the EU-Horizon 2020 funded HNV Link project, the school will take place in a number of locations across the ‘Galway Burren’ over three days in late October (25th – 27th). It forms part of a broader festival of events to celebrate and support pastoral farming and its importance to our rural communities and heritage.
Bookings are now open. Don’t miss out! More information on the event can be found here https://www.burrenwinterage.com/copy-of-burren-winterage-school-2
