Art for Kelp Exhibition
Friday, 1 June
4pm in Organico Cafe
Monday, 28 May - Saturday, 23 June
in Organico Cafe
Join us in the cafe for the opening launch of an art exhibition which supports a cause near and dear to our hearts:
Art for Kelp is a creative campaign working for the preservation of the native kelp forest here in Bantry Bay. Its existence is endangered since the government issued a license for the mechanical extraction of 1,860 acres of Bantry Bay’s native kelp.
The group, Bantry Bay Protect Our Native Kelp Forest, has organized Art for Kelp: a sale of artwork donated by local artists to support the campaign for the preservation of Bantry Bay’s native kelp forest.
Each piece costs only €50 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the kelp preservation campaign. The pieces will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and you can make your purchase as soon as the exhibition opens.
Unable to make it to the launch? Not to worry, you’ll be able to view the artwork on display in Organico Cafe through Saturday, 23 June.
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate the beauty — both natural and artistic — of our local community.

Saturday, 9th June
11-11:30 AM in Organico Cafe
Come to our recycling workshop and get your bin sorted!
Recycling is such an important act for the environment, but because it’s often done improperly, up to 30% of what goes into domestic recycling is contaminated and ends up as waste in landfills.
Join us for this workshop where Teresa Mac Eoin, in conjunction with Repak, will walk us through the best practices for effective recycling in our homes and we’ll gain simple know-how to make an invaluable impact.
Sample: Viridian Nutritional Oils
Friday, 15 June
11AM-3PM in Organico Shop
These oils are an easy way to enhance your daily intake of health-promoting ingredients and oils that suit your needs.
We hope you'll join us for these events in June!
