Meet our June Ambassadors – Irish Seed Savers

We would like to introduce our June Farming For Nature Ambassadors, the Irish Seed Savers Association.  The Irish Seed Savers Association (ISSA) have made a major contribution to the protection and enhancement of nature on farms, gardens and across Ireland for over 30 years.

ISSA conserve Ireland’s threatened genetic resources and maintain a public seed bank of over 600 varieties of seed. They preserve heirloom and heritage food crop varieties that are suitable for Ireland and local growing conditions, contributing to the nation’s food security. They provide a unique service to the nation in terms of supply of organic heritage seeds and apples trees. The 20 acre farm, gardens and visitor trail at Capparoe, Scarriff, Co. Clare is an inspiration, ably demonstrating best practice in organic farming and farming for nature. They supply seeds of vegetables, grains, herbs and edible flowers, as well as apple trees the progeny of which, thanks to ISSA, adorn many an orchard across Ireland today.

ISSA are hosting a Farming for Nature walk on the 23rd of June. Places are limited and advance booking is essential. Further details and bookings on https://www.tickettailor.com/events/farmingfornature/490299
