The Woodland

This natural site will be designed to create ecological niches filled with Irish oak and flowers, and rich in natural resources to support wildlife, including the native Irish black bee. This woodland will increase biodiversity, link existing habitats, and sequester carbon. In 2045, a standing stone will be placed in a central grove to mark the 200-year anniversary of the Great Famine. 

 

Location

We’re speaking with community groups to find a suitable site in the Kingdom of Mide (Meath & Westmeath). Hill of Uisneach was the centre of Gaelic Ireland and the site of the ancient Bealtaine Fires (Summer Festival), the woodland will be strategically located to connect existing habitat and enhance Ireland’s Ancient East.  

 

People Powered

As well as the charity’s directors, there are many people behind the scenes at GWP that make this whole project possible. 

From volunteers helping out at our events and others donating their time and skills to different aspects of the project. We would not be where we are without the people around this project.
