Slow Food Ireland Debate

Venue: Heritage Centre – Meath County Council Stage
Don’t Treat Soil Like Dirt! A simple statement, but a very important one and the message behind the People4Soil campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the dangers posed to Irish soils through pesticide uses, afforestation, erosion, urbanisation and overgrazing. It is also the central focus of this panel discussion, hosted by Slow Food Dublin and led by Anthony O’Toole, committee member and Fáilte Ireland Food Champion. He will be joined by experts Fiona Brennan, soil microbiologist from An Teagasc, Aaron Jewell from People4Soil Campaign and Rod Calder-Pott from Highbank Organic Farm to discuss the health of Ireland’s soil, how it affects our food and environment and if action isn’t taken the detrimental effects it will have in the future.
