The Agri Aware Farm Walk and Talk Events are back, with students once again able to attend in person.
Farm Walk and Talk is a series of events for second-level, agricultural science students throughout the first two weeks of March in ten locations across the country.
This year, all schools that attend the Farm Walk & Talk Events get access to a suite of educational videos from a variety of contributors alongside the comprehensive study notes.
It is a longstanding collaboration between Agri Aware, Teagasc, UCD, the Irish Farmers Journal and I.A.S.T.A.
The notes and videos cover the new Agricultural Science syllabus across the eight cross-cutting themes / Individual Investigative Study Project Themes.
