Name for a farm space

Unread post by Chalkie » Thu Aug 13, 2020 2:44 am

Hi Everyone,
I am new to this group. I teach at a school that has Celtic spirituality as part of the ethos and culture. We are starting an Urban Farm space and we were looking to have a Gaelic name for this space. The farm is designed to inspire students in earth stewardship and sustainability. We would love some suggestions that might communicate our connection with earth. Thank you.

If you can come up with something in English, we might find a suitable tr*nsl*t**n.

Thank you,
We are after a name that would be easy for the students to pronounce and feel comfortable with. Maybe something that translates to
Urban Farm
Fruits of the Earth
Food for the Soul
Earth Care
Farm Space
Our Farm
Unity Farm

Does that help?
:)

Sorry it took me a while... here are some:

Croit baile / Tuathanas baile
Toradh na talmhainn
Anam-bhiadh
Cùram na talmhainn

They all contain sounds that the English language doesn't have, so I'm not up to the "easy to pronounce" challenge right now.

I have been thinking... how about:

Comann an àiteachais - The farming society
Comann àiteachas <cityname> - The <cityname> farming society

If it's a Scottish city, let us know so we can give you the proper name in the genitive case ;)
