Land Use

Ireland is famous for its green, lush countryside and has an international reputation for both its landscapes and its agricultural industry.  Indeed over 70% of Ireland’s land is managed for farming and forestry, mostly consisting of small land holdings of less than 20 hectares.
 
With a surge of interest in growing our own food, and becoming more connected with our direct environment, the challenge is to find more sustainable ways in which to manage the land for ourselves and future generations.

To address these issues, these courses will educate participants in alternative farming practices and low cost technologies appropriate to different land holdings, whilst supporting and balancing the needs of native wildlife.
