Agri Aware Farm Walk & Talk returns with in-person events!

February 4, 2022

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.

  • Videos: Each feature one of the eight cross-cutting themes

Teachers can email to be put on a waiting list for the events, this will not guarantee a place.

Should any classes not secure a place at our events, there is still an educational notes and videos only package available. This costs €5 per student, with a minimum order of five students (€25 minimum).

All payments must be made in advance of attending the events/receiving the notes and videos.
