Event Description

The Europe Direct Information Centre brought the farm to libraries and young children in Donegal. Young students from towns and villages enjoyed hearing about modern farming methods in Europe and Ireland, met real farmers and learned all about a day in the life of a farmer.

The promotion of Open Farming, especially to children is a priority of EU Cap Reform’s Schools initiative, ‘Taking Care of Our Roots’. 

Here children received the opportunity to engage with some sensory exercises while meeting small farm animals.
