Future Proof Kilkenny

Although we don’t have much planned over the summer there is plenty going on locally and around the country on the theme of transitioning. Here’s a couple of events over the next two weeks that you might be interested in.

Heritage wheat and oat varieties

Camphill Jerpoint, Thomastown, Tuesday 11th August, 7-8pm, Free

This is a return visit to the trial wheat plantings that were carried out during our “Grow your own cereal” course last spring. The wheat is almost ready to be harvested (weather permitting) and this evening is a chance to observe this “visual treat” of 30 different varieties dating from Roman times right through to the present day. Participants of the spring course as well as anybody else who is interested are welcome to attend. Contact Brian (0567725913) or Michal (0863104638) if you can make it.

Edible and Medicinal Herb Identification

Marlfield Lake, Clonmel, Sunday 9th August, 3:30pm, Free

This event is being organised by the Transition Town Clonmel group.

Are you interested in finding our more about wild plants and their uses? Come along and learn about our local natural heritage, the amazing variety of plants that are hiding in our local habitats, how to identify them and how they can be used. This family event will be led by herbalist Christine Maxwell with assistance from ecologist Mieke Muyllaert. You are welcome to bring along plants you want identified and if you would like to make a reference book to take home bring an old book or notebook (no glossy pages) to press the plants in. Please bring stout shoes and rain gear – we will go ahead whatever the weather! If the weather is fine bring a picnic. As parking is limited at the lake, we would ask that people walk, cycle or car-share. Enquiries to Mieke Muyllaert (0526127930).
