Community Farm Barn Destroyed by Fire

Update posted by Jane Baker On Sep 17, 2017

Dear Friends of Cloughjordan Community Farm,

Together we achieved our €4000 target

Thanks to your generous support, we raised €4462 for Cloughjordan Community Farm through our Go Get Funding campaign. That’s over 111% of our target in just three weeks.

This is an incredible achievement and means that the farm can get back on the road to recovery straight away. All the donations are going direct to the farm’s bank account. We’ve been in touch with them throughout the campaign, and they have been overwhelmed by the response. Here’s a few words from Wendy and Pat (Pat is the farmer featured in the short film):

“We can't express enough how the generosity of complete strangers has been particularly moving, as well as the many offerings in so many ways from our wonderful community, both within the ecovillage and the whole of Cloughjordan. Our spirits have been so lifted by the amazing responses, from the crowd funding to direct donations and offers of practical help, from fundraising to local farmers offering us hay and equipment….we are certainly getting back on our feet and are on the road to rebuilding what we hope will be a truly beautiful community farm ecologically-built barn, which people will hopefully be able to follow on our facebook page”

So, thank you so much again for donating and helping this fundraiser to be a huge success. If you don’t already, then please follow the farm on their facebook page for future updates about replacing the barn - and all the other great work that they do. https://www.facebook.com/CloughjordanCommunityFarm

Warmest regards,

Jane, Tom, Reuben and the 2017 Cloughjordan Permaculture Students

A great cause, unfortunate accident. I hope you get enough to complete the project and more.

I absolutely love our farm and see it as one of the most sustainable elements of living in Cloughjordan. We have had lots of challenges and yet as a resilient community we keep growing and developing even through the difficult times. We've got a long way to go but just the promise of continued progress gives me hope for the future when our community may need to depend on our local food model. That so many other people understand the importance of developing a local and sustainable food source and are willing to help us through this most recent tragedy speaks highly of the spirit of the community and of those who share the vision of sustainability. Many thanks to all our friends!

I love so many aspects of this farm, I wrote a poem about it. See Yes A to Z. Aka zing me with your celery stick. By Oliver Moore. Abundance? Often. Basics? Always...but bizarrely biodynamic too, so cosmic Community. Community owned and operated. Community..is -dense. - and intense. - like sitting on the electric fence. So... Dig for victory! Eat with Earth First! Fresh - beyond the beyonds. Grumble gaps...don't last long. Goodness, gracious great balls of golden turnips! Human-scale... horse-scale too. Inspirational. Compost loo. Split in two. To allow for two to poo poo...so Jump for joy! know thy food and know thy self. Local. Not thinkin' about lo-cal. Mmmmmmmmmmm.... - microbes - Mixed farming - music - meals -all manner of muck and magic Nourish me Open with everything. -produce, -people, -place, -promote -process, -participate, -parlance...a Praxis of identization. Give these 7P's a chance too eh? Q...in a supermarket sucker! My shop is spacious and 24-7 :-) Risky rewards, responsible relationships... Resilience - actualised. Sustainability - modernised. Transition...through soil, singing and ting-a ling-a linging Underground...is where the action is. Very veggie, voluminous volunteering, Wondorous wizardly workers, wild wwoofers, wilder wisemen and women who should know better than to make life so very very - unusual. - awkward. - not cheap. - complicated. - but yet still...so very very Worth-while. All the while... X-act-ly. Yes…. It’s Zingy.
