Future Proof Kilkenny

2pm – 11pm, Friday 18th June, Raheen, Piltown

The “Fairy-Playground” is Kilkenny’s first Community Supported Farm iniative, or CSA, that is being set up by Michael Micklis of the Biodynamic Association. The Farm is set in the beautiful rolling hills of Piltown and consists of Heritage Orchards, Cereal crops, Vegetable gardens and Polytunnels.

Adding preperations and turning the compost

On Friday 18th June an open day will take place for members and non-members. There will be a bonfire, barbecue, tours of the farm and orchard, demonstration of working with draft animals and, for those who abhor the use strimmers, an afternoon workshop on the ancient craft of working with a good scythe.

Adding Preparations and turning the compost

The farm is well into production at this time of year and so this is a great opportunity to see the food growing and get involved. The CSA would like to attract new members from the Kilkenny/Waterford/New Ross/Clonmel area. Membership will entitle you to a supply of vegetables and cereals throughout the year as well as the opportunity to participate in growing your own food, meet with like-minded individuals and learn organic and biodynamic techniques.

Members of the fledgling CSA group hold a meeting in the newly erected polytunnel

If you are interested in joining the CSA you can find out more and sign up at the open day. If you are interested but cannot attend the open day contact Michael on 086 3104638 or email bdaai[at]indigo[dot]ie

One Comment to “Open day at the “Fairy Playground””

    What a fabulous project! I will miss the open day but please keep me updated on becoming a member of Fairy Playground CSA. I have a video the ‘Real Dirt on Farmer John’ about a farmer in Chicago’s journey to setting up his CSA. It would make for a good viewing at a future event.
    Well done all involved at Piltown.
    Regards, Germaine
