Talamh Beo is building a network of Lighthouse farms in the 46 water catchment area’s of Ireland. From the 1st 16 farms established through the “Soil Biodiversity & Enhancement EIP project” they are growing a network of local farms (hubs), where on the farm education around soil biodiversity and its effect on water quality are core elements. Manna Organic Farm, Cloughjordan Community Farm and Cloncannon Biofarm are some of the growing Talamh Beo Lighthouse Farm Network.
Starting with the soil is key, as the diversity of our soils is intricately linked to above ground biodiversity. These Lighthouse Farm experiences will focus on celebrating the diversity of soil and exploring the critical role of soil health in promoting biodiversity, food sovereignty, and climate resilience
