The sustainable lifestyle festival. 24th-26th July-Wexford

Seanchas is planned for the 24th to the 26th of July. This 3 day event combines many aspects of sustainable living. Over the weekend workshops will be available, reskilling people in native heritage crafts and practical living skills, as well as educating them on the issues that face us as society today.

The event is built on people coming together to share information, so if you have something to share come along. The timetable will be open for people to lead a workshop or facilitate a discussion.

We wish to create awareness, infact this is our main aim. We wish to empower people, to renew in them the ability and confidence to sustain themselves and have their voice heard.

There is some great music planned. Friday night is trad night with a fusion of local and West Cork Talent. Bring along your instrument and join in the session. Then on Saturday night we have red chair live on tour with whom we will be treated to the finest local singer songwriters in an acoustic session in the woods. Then on Sunday night we'll finish off the weekend with a bang. We've loads of bands planned including our own wexford based 'The Hundred Flower Campaign' and Galway reggae band 'Intinn' along with many more.

We will be cooking pizzas and other tasty treats in our cob oven in the woods so you wont be left hungry. All meals are vegetarian and etically sourced with percentage of proceeds from the café going to Etiopian reforestation.

We hope to run the whole event on renewable sources of energy with solar panels, wind turbines, bio power generators and bike power technology. There will also be compost toilets.
We wish to set an example of how we can all live together sustainably, both socially and environmentaly.

I would like to wish the organisers every success with this Festival. The principles of sustainability , promoting native heritage , crafts etc all touch the heart of those with a soul connection to our land. To educate and share this knowledge with others is a great calling. I look forward to attending the Workshops and sharing these wonderful experiences with you all. Everything sounds great from the workshops to meals to music sessions, really cant wait! :)

The Tara Solidarity Vigil will make a presentation on what is currently happening in the campaign to protect the Tara Valley as well as their vision for sustainable and eco living, a model of which is to be seen at the Vigil Camp, Belper Farm just down the road from Rath Maeve on the Hill of Tara. Thank you for inviting us and giving us this opportunity to share the story.

Thats great cos the Celt in the woods was cancelled for this weekend and this gives me something to look forward to :) It's a similar type of event with sustainable living and crafts etc. There should be more of this sort of thing! Thanks
