The seven weekly sessions are part of the Forestry Knowledge Transfer Group (KTG) programme, supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

Session will give forestry owners an opportunity to exchange information and discuss common issues.
Participants will receive €70 per meeting attended for a total of seven meetings.
The KTG being organised by the local group in Kilkenny will be starting in early September and running weekly.
This KTG is open to forest owners who have not taken part in the course in the previous three years i.e. 2019 to 2021.
