The National Rural Network have recently released the 6th episode of our Video Blog (Vlog) series featuring farmers who are participating EIP-AGRI projects throughout Ireland.
The latest Vlog features Gerard Walsh, a farmer who is involved in the Farming Rathcroghan EIP-AGRI Project, along with an introduction to the project from its Manager, Dr Petra Kock-Appelgren. You can view the Vlog here.
This good practice dissemination platform is just one of a number of multi-method communication strategies being implemented by the NRN to maximize the success of the objectives set out in Ireland’s Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 (extended to 2022) on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM).
The Farming Rathcroghan EIP-AGRI Project promotes the continuation of farming in the Rathcroghan area by providing guidance and economic support for farmers to maintain and enhance the archaeological landscape, while providing co-benefits for a range of services – including biodiversity, carbon sequestration and water quality.
You can find a full description of this project’s rationale, aims, objectives and activities on page 17 of the NRN’s ‘EIP-AGRI: Ireland’s Operational Groups’ Booklet. Please see here.
