This week is National Organic Week! From the Bord Bia website:
National Organic Week has been held annually since 2005. It is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and co-ordinated by Bord Bia on behalf of Forás Orgánach. National Organic Week 2011 aims to continue to raise consumer awareness of the benefits of organic produce and increase the frequency of consumption of locally produced organic food. Cooking a tasty meal for friends and family with in-season organic ingredients is an ideal way to treat your loved ones and enjoy the freshest produce sourced in your local region.

On Friday 16th, you can enjoy some local organic produce at a food sampling event in the Market Square, Longford. For further details, see http://www.bordbia.ie/aboutfood/organicfood/Pages/NationalOrganicWeek2011-EventsListing.aspx
