The weekend kicks off on the evening of Friday, October 7 with a seaweed cooking workshop from 5pm until 7pm in the Tech Amergin and this will then be followed from 7pm until 9pm by the official opening of the Iveragh Learning Landscapes and Stories of Change Weekend.

The opening will feature the launch of Fair Seas Video along with a Q&A session. There will be an Expert panel discussion moderated by Orla Snook O’ Carroll (Valentia Island Vermouth) and this will include speakers Lucy Taylor (Live Project), Luke Myers (Kerry Eco-Social Farming Project), Anna Kellagher (Sea Synergy) and Stephen O'Shea (Pearl Mussel Project).

Friday finishes up with a Fuinneamh Drum session to ring in the weekend.

Highlights over the next two days, Saturday October 8 and Sunday October 9, include a number of different workshops including seashore exploration, kayak and paddle boarding and a guided walk along Lohar Loop.

Along with the workshops, there will be a season feast (Saturday), a children’s workshop (Saturday) and grounding yoga and a beach swim at Ballinskelligs on the Sunday morning.

“It's really great this year to team up with a national project like Stories of Change to showcase our local area here and the great work that is being done to preserve it by people on the ground,” said Eleanor Turner, the co-founder of Iveragh Learning Landscapes.
