Grow It Yourself And Organic Beef

Next meeting of GIY (Grow It Yourself) Thurles will be held on Thursday next, March 11th, at 7.00pm in the Thurles  Library building, The Source, Cathedral  Street, Thurles.

As we have now officially entered into Spring, it’s time to start thinking again about  growing our own vegetables.
With St Patrick ’s Day approaching fast, don’t forget to set your early potatoes.

Tipperary Organic Food

The GIY networks team aim to take the ‘self’ out of ‘self-sufficiency’ by getting garden growers together on a regular basis to chat and learn the tips of the trade from one another.

Note: The meetings are free and open to people interested in food production at all levels, e.g. from growing a few herbs on the balcony to complete self-sufficiency for beginners as well as old hands.

And talking about healthy food, congratulations to Omega Beef Direct in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, who won an environmental award for its sustainable farming and production methods.
