More Trees On The Land
My Own Three Tree Passions
Since being hugely inspired by the people I met at the Tree Festival in Co. Leitrim, at the end of August, and.synthesised in with my own lifelong woodland passions, these three passions have surfaced to the top with me.
- Forest Schooling, that is for all ages and not limited to games and wonders for the children, but a whole psyche and value transformation for anyone.
- Being among woodland, or any native wilderness such as coast, savannah. prairie etc. and that being our sacred space of faith, inspiration, esteem, confidence, self-love for shared love, sensing, listening, vision, expression, and creation.
- How to create or be part of a Tree Sanctuary and by doing so also increase the native tree cover of our lands for CO2 absorption, physical healing and protection, mental healing and protection, and dream catching and using.
'Trees On The Land' is an amazing charity, In short, each year, on your land, or through helping someone on their land youget more trees planted in Ireland. They are very well organised, and tree plants pricing very good. If you are not sure where to plant trees please message me as I may be able to help through our new Tree Sanctuaries hub.
During 2020 the proceeds from our 4 Secret Gardens Of Sligo Open Afternoons will also go to this charity.
Here is some 'blurb' copied from their web site ...
Trees on the Land is a cross-border initiative working to establish young native trees across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
We run an annual tree planting event where landowners across the 32 counties turn out to plant their trees on a selected Saturday in February. Our next planting day is Saturday 15th February 2020.
We provide simple schemes for landowners to access quality native tree mixes each season. We work with farmers, smallholders, community groups, councils, schools, colleges and many other landowners to coordinate sites to accommodate trees.
Our vision is to establish tree cover and woodland in rural and urban areas that will grow for many years and provide valuable resources, beneficial ecosystem services and a lasting legacy for future generations.
We plant small woodlands, coppices, orchards, hedgerows, shelter belts, agroforestry projects, reforestation sites and larger woodlands. We have planted more than a million trees at several thousand sites in Ireland and Northern Ireland since 2013.
.Trees on the Land is a charity & not-for-profit project from the Green Economy Foundation in collaboration with The Woodland Trust in Northern Ireland, Green Economy Foundation, Manch Estate, Ballineen, Co. Cork, Ireland. Charity Number: 15746.
