Note : The “Annual Review” is designed to bring people up to date with what members have been doing recently under the Feasta banner and there will also be a full-day planning meeting in January to develop our programme for 2008.

The formal AGM ended at 1pm, there was a break for lunch and we resumed at 2 pm with the afternoon programme.

We had four half-hour sessions between 2pm and 4pm, each consisting of a 10-15 minute talk followed by a 15-20 minute discussion. For the first session, two members who have been exploring the benefits of incorporating charcoal into the soil, Bruce Darrell and Emer O Siochru, reported on their findings. It appears that soil charcoal increases fertility and could be an excellent way of sequestering carbon to combat climate change.

Then, since we did not run a Soapbox at the Members’ Weekend in Co. Wexford earlier in the year, there was an opportunity for other members to report on any sustainability-related work they were doing or to put forward ideas to get feedback from everyone else.
