Green Sod Ireland is a Land Trust that Protects Land and its Biodiversity.
To date Green Sod Ireland has been gifted in excess of 100 acres by visionary individuals and communities in Counties Galway, Cork, Carlow, Donegal, Mayo and Cavan. Gifted land is first and foremost appraised by ecologists who complete an initial ecology report with findings and recommendations. The diversity of land across Ireland means that individual management plans are created to address the specific needs of each. The local community participate in the protection of land and are invited to engage in various ecological education initiatives. They are an integral part of holding this land in trust together.
A series of online events – Wild Acres Week – is planned for 5th -12th June 2021. Focusing on biodiversity it is about the intrinsic value of nature and what actions can help to protect our environment.
“In this era of climate change and uncertainty we are asking specialists to discuss their knowledge of biodiversity and their understanding of the interconnectedness between humans and the natural world. We have invited scientists, artists, environmentalists, and other concerned citizens to share their insights and stories.”
