Maynooth University is joining with Afri, Feasta and the Irish Seed Savers Association to host 'Food for Thought- Seeds of Change'- an online gathering and discussion on food, seeds and the loss of social space in the context of the COVID 19 pandemic on September 11th at 12 noon to 2pm.

With guest speakers, music, commentary, imagery and reflection as we approach harvest time and look towards harvests of the future.

Key contributors will be Clare O'Grady Walshe & Fergal Anderson with live music by 'An Tara' - Tommy Hayes and Matthew Noone.

For over four decades Afri has been involved in opposing war, promoting food sovereignty and tackling climate change - working especially with Secondary and Third level students as well as with the general public. They organise the annual Famine Walk in Mayo, a Hedge School in TU Blanchardstown and Féile Bríde in Kildare - at which this short promotional video was recorded.
