Deirdre O’Mahony and The PLOT 1 at VISUAL Carlow

Deirdre O’Mahony's work explores sustainable agriculture, food systems and how farmers and rural communities are navigating this terrain. Her ongoing project The Sustainment Experiments is a form of public inquiry that considers what actions can be taken concerning farming and food consumption in the context of the ecological and climate crisis. As part of Sustainment Experiments, Deirdre has been working with VISUAL over a number of years. Currently, on a piece of land on the grounds of VISUAL, Deirdre is growing sainfoin, a fodder crop that has fallen out of use in Ireland but has many wonderful benefits, including inproved animal health, promoting nitrogen fixing in soil and supporting biodiversity.
