Rediscover forgotten skills and raise awareness on the importance of the knowledge transmission from one generation to the other.

Brief description
The Grandmothers' Day 2013 will take place on April 20-21. On Saturday April 20th “Slow Roots” an International, expert led Symposium will tackle the topic of how to use Traditional Irish Food to create jobs in rural communities as we explore the question: “How can we learn from our Food Heritage to create employment for this generation?”.
