Food Citizenship Podcast – Episode 7

Food Citizenship Podcast – Episode 7

In this podcast episode we chat with Jason Horner of Leen Organics in Clare about his journey into farming, the Organic Growers of Ireland group, the Small Growers network and the Future Growers Internship. In Ireland, less then 2% of land under agri-production is organic and only 1% is used to cultivate vegetables. Add to this the staggering levels of imported fruit and vegetables and the fact only 6% of Irish farmers are under 35 years, means we find ourselves asking that same question again; who will grow our food and where?
