In response to a consultation call from the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine on their Agri-Food 2030 strategy, Feasta has prepared this submission, which calls for “the development of a vibrant rural economy that employs a high percentage of young people, producing a wide variety of high-quality food using agroecological methods that regenerate soil, restore forest diversity, protect water, and provide food security for Ireland, while mitigating climate disruption and restoring biodiversity.”
