Clonmel Transition Town are holding a seminar this coming Saturday 7th November called “Feeding Clonmel”. It runs from 10am to 1pm at St. Peter & Pauls school hall and begins with a keynote address by Dr. Colin Sage of UCC.

I heard Colin speak at last year’s Terra Madre conference where he gave an excellent workshop on how peak oil will affect our food supply and why we urgently need to build more local resilient food systems.

His address will be followed by a series of shorter talks by growers and activists who are already addressing the issue with local positive solutions such as allotments, community gardens, community supported agriculture and other initiatives. The event is free and well worth attending. Full details below the fold.
