A citizens' observatory for growers, researchers and decision makers.
Do you grow your own food? Have an allotment? Own a small farm? Are you involved in a community or school garden?
Are you taking practical steps to regenerate the soil for future generations? GROW provides an opportunity to develop and share your knowledge and skills.
Join us in the GROW Observatory, a European-wide project engaging thousands of growers as citizen scientists. We will learn together, using simple tools to better manage soil, while contributing to vital global environmental monitoring.
Our coordinated experiments will help with forecasting and preparing for climate events, such as heat waves and floods, by validating the detection of soil moisture from satellites.
Visit GROW at curiology to get involved in the project.

Visit Ireland's Only Ecovillage - Learn about Living and Working Sustainably
Cultivate designs and delivers one to five day programmes for groups around a particular topic or topics of interest related to the transition to a low carbon and resilient society. These can include Green Building and Sustainable Energy, Local Food, Food Security, Community Energy Transition, Local Enterprise, Digital Manufacturing, Community Resilience and Sustainable Living.
We tailor the tours for each group and work with them to devise a personalised itinerary on their specific area of interest. These study tours can range from one to several days, depending on the itinerary developed, though we recommend at least two days to allow for a more immersive experience.
Cloughjordan is a traditional Irish village which is now also home to the Cloughjordan Ecovillage. This is where we share our experience and knowledge with groups of all ages, sizes and interests.
Activities are based in the Ecovillage and can include tours, talks, practical workshops and social events in Cloughjordan and the surrounding area. We can also work with groups on transport, accommodation and meals. Groups interested in continuing professional development can participate in industry specific workshops and talks.
