On Tuesday, 11th July 2023, we held an evening of stories and discussion about 7 different farms across Ireland who are engaging with Regenerative Agriculture & other sustainable farming practices.
The webinar involved a short introduction to Regenerative Agriculture and then an overview of each farm followed by a Q&A with the farmers. The questions came mainly from the people who joined us online for the webinar and we would like to thank everyone for their enthusiastic participation!
We were delighted that 6 of the 7 farmers were able to join us on the webinar and to share their experience and knowledge with us and we would like to thank each of them for giving us so much of their time:
- Laura Jane Foley & Daniel Lyons, Wild Atlantic Hemp, County Clare [Hemp]

- Steve Collins, DerryDuff Farm, County Cork [Berry Farm & Mixed Livestock]
- John McHugh, Clondarrig Farm, County Laois [Dairy, Beef & Community Allotments]

The webinar was recorded and is now available to watch:
What is the REGINA project?
SECAD Partnership CLG has joined partners from Italy, Greece, Hungary and Slovenia in the Erasmus+ REGINA Project. This project stands for:
‘Regenerative agriculture. An innovative approach towards mitigation of climate change through multi-tier learning.’
The REGINA project aims to explore Regenerative Agriculture in our respective countries and compile the learnings to create a university module in Regenerative Agriculture, and an online Regenerative Agriculture learning platform.
