Tickets Free Of Charge - But Booking is Required on 066) 7123055

Join local artist, Lisa Fingleton, as she describes her experience of eating local

For 30 days, the artist Lisa Fingleton ate only food produced and grown on the island of Ireland. This meant doing without much of the imported food we are accustomed to such as sugar, chocolate, pasta and bananas.

The project became a larger community undertaking as people started arriving at her farm with grapes, eggs and locally grown treats. She documented the hungry lows and laughable highs, of the whole project through drawings and photography. In September 2018 the artist is inviting 30 people to join her in the 30 day local food challenge.

In this artist talk/workshop she will explain how to go about eating local. This practical and inspiring workshop will resonate with anyone interested in growing food, climate change, transition communities and living sustainably.
