Meath football stars Stacey Grimes, Shauna Ennis and Katie Newe launched the Agri Aware Incredible Edibles Schools programme.
The Incredible Edibles programme provides schools with free fruit and vegetable growing kits. The children get a hands-on experience of growing and eating their food. They learn all about how food gets to their plates.
Incredible Edibles is entering its fifteenth year, celebrated by Ireland’s best fifteen at the launch.
Agriculture is Ireland’s oldest industry. From our first settlers almost 10,000 years ago, it continues to evolve, tending to crops, caring for animals and providing for its people.
We invite you to learn about our farms, discovering the various people and families who are producing your food, and the environmentally friendly farming methods that they are using to ensure our shared future is protected for generations to come.

Farm Walk & Talk
Farm Walk and Talk is an interactive series of events for second-level, agricultural science students throughout early March on ten research farms across the country.
While Farm Walk & talk was a brilliant success in its virtual format in 2021, with over 18,000 students involved, everyone is excited to get back to a hands-on experience. 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.
The event has now sold out for tours, with virtual packages still available.
