Talamh Beo is a grassroots organisation of farmers, growers and land based workers on the island of Ireland which aims to ensure a living landscape where people and ecosystems can thrive together.
We want to create a better food system in Ireland, where all people have access to healthy, nutritious and affordable local food.
We want to farm in ways which benefit and restore natural ecosystems and build soils, leaving the land better than when we started.
We want to show solidarity with rural communities across Ireland and the world and ensure that living from the land and with the land continues into the future.
Talamh Beo is a democratically organised, member-led organisation. It is run by farmers who have direct experience of the issues they campaign on in their livelihoods and communities.
We believe that farmers and communities should be at the centre of decision-making for food and agriculture systems and developing agricultural policies.
