Amma’s visit and the GreenFriends Table.

We were delighted to have so many visits the GreenFriend’s table when we were blessed with Amma’s visit this October. The table was busy over the weekend and full of productive and inspiring conversations. We have identified 3 new possible woodland sites to add to the sites in Cork and Donegal.

We would love you to be part of the GreenFriend’s native woodlands and nature reserve movement and are open to welcoming all skill sets from management, fundraising to planting trees. Please contact us at greenfriends@ammaireland.org with woodlands in the subject bar.





Planting In Meelin 19th+ 20th of November 2019

We are getting ready here in Meelin for our next planting days, scheduled on Saturday 19th  & 20th of November. We are ordering the 600 native and indigenous trees and their protection, preparing the site and deciding what trees to plant where.

You are most welcome to join us on either or both planting days. We will begin at 9 am each day, but appreciate that people may be coming from all over Ireland. Training will be provided. Children of all ages are welcome and are actively encouraged to get involved. Please bring Warm waterproof clothes, and footwear.

Meelin is located 1 hour outside Limerick. Directions to Meelin: https://goo.gl/maps/aGx3dVeSdbU2

Please let us know as soon as you can if you can join us, so that we may work together to coordinate carpooling, food sharing, tool bringing because we need shovels and rakes. Please contact Roisin at greenfriends@ammaireland.org with woodlands in the subject bar.

Helping with buying trees + tree vouchers

 We welcome all donations, 100% of which go towards buying trees and tree protection, because we are a fully volunteer run organization. Tree vouchers, which make beautiful gifts, are also available.  http://ammaireland.org/gf-amma-woodland.html#meelin_trees

We look forward to seeing you in Meelin.
