We are a registered charity (RCN: 20206178), run by skill-sharing volunteers, committed to creating an ecologically complex patchwork of native habitats in Ireland. Founded by Eoghan Connaughton, we became an official charity in 2022 (here we are in the Charities Register).
Many people care about the environment, and we want to create an outdoor learning hub to turn that passion into action. Through our work with removing invasive species and our fundraising to create a native woodland, we hope to bring the power of communities together in the service of Irish ecology.
We are structured in a 3-tiers approach: the roots, the trunk and the leaves:
A Board of Directors and a Secretary, all of us are passionate about Ireland’s future. We are all working professionals volunteering our time, skills, and funds to the project so that 100% of the donations received will go to the project.
