School/home/art collaboration

In 2017-2018 we distributed over 1,200 seeds to primary and secondary school children, in collaboration with St. Fergal’s and St. Killian’s local schools in Bray. While these seeds became seedlings, this project ‘played no small part in’ Self-Help Africa’s school & trees project,

[I Am a Forest] played no small part in inspiring our own tree planting campaign and has been replicated successfully in over 450 schools across Ireland. Now, supported by the INTO, primary schools are planting native trees across Ireland, and supporting communities to plant tens of thousands of new trees in Uganda, Kenya, Senegal and Malawi.
