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.
