This course is a collaboration between Síolta Chroí, a centre for regenerative land management, Ecosystem Restoration Camps, a global movement of ecosystem restoration projects, and Open Food Network Ireland, a network of local community food hubs.

Aim of the training

  • To support and guide people, and communities, across Ireland who want to get involved in creating a fair and regenerative food system in their local area
  • To build and support the work already underway by the Open Food Network Ireland to create local, resilient food systems all around Ireland

This course is part of a one year European project between Síolta Chroí and Ecosystem Restoration Camps - exploring food, food hubs, and direct selling as a tool to support ecosystem restoration.

A food hub is a community of farmers and local producers who join forces to sell their produce directly to consumers. This training is to support communities across Ireland in developing their own local food hub.

The course will involve a two day in person training at Síolta Chroí, covering how to establish a local food system as well as three online webinars with global leaders, exploring regenerative food systems. Expect topics such as, the global shift needed back to local, regenerative food systems, lessons and learnings from running a local food hub, and the larger quest for humanity, of restoring the land and rebalancing our relationship with nature.

Who is the training for?

This training is for anyone who wants to tackle social and environmental issues. For people who want to create a more fair local and global economy. But will be of specific benefit for:

  • Farmers who want to realise a fairer price for their produce & their work
  • Families and community members who want access to food that is good for their community and for the planet
  • Entrepreneurs and Eco-warriors who want to create a livelihood that focuses on environmental and social justice
