Growing a Wood - Growing Community - Growing Knowledge and Understanding 10 years - 10,000 children - 10,000 trees This is a conservation project that has its eye set firmly on the need for future environmental stewardship. Planetary conservation and protection of biodiversity needs more champions than ever before and the young people in our society are the decision-makers of tomorrow. With a growing disconnect between young people in urban communities and the natural environment, it is more important than ever before to put them at the heart of environmental projects. We have formed a COMMUNITY of 25 local schools, youth groups, volunteers and businesses working in partnership together and with specialist environmental organisations. Our aim over the decade 2012-2021 is to involve every young person in our community in creating new woodland, somewhere to relax, to enjoy, to learn. Once the 12-acre wood is complete, tree planting will continue through partnerships with local landowners as we plant outwards from Harmony Woods creating green corridors that link to nearby woodland and copses. We offer regular volunteering in nature for all irrespective of age or ability and offer training in green crafts, including coppicing, constantly striving to grow the volunteer base both in numbers and capacity. The first 5 years were spent establishing the project; the second 5 years is about realising its potential, a major part of which is to support 6 of our 25 schools to develop programmes of outdoor learning linked to arts and science and based on the wood that their students are helping to plant. We are currently fundraising to employ an education officer, fund outdoor learning programmes led by local artists and convert a pair of steel containers into an off-grid woodland 'Cabin', an all-seasons base for volunteers and a teaching space for all, connecting people to nature and local heritage.

Husky Rescue Ireland (HRI) was set up to alleviate the suffering caused to huskies by irresponsible ownership, abuse and neglect in Ireland. Due to the increase in akitas needing homes recently and lack of rescue space, we also dedicate our time rehoming them. HRI also aims to reduce the social impact of abandoned and un-neutered huskies and akitas in communities around Ireland. Some of the key objectives of HRI are to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome healthy neutered dogs responsibly and to educate and provide support to the general public on responsible dog ownership and dog welfare. HRI aim to achieve the this through forging strong relationships with pounds and rescues throughout Ireland. HRI will also provide each dog with high quality healthcare, training and ensure their basic needs are met. There are several beneficiaries to the work that HRI do, these include: the dogs themselves, state funded pounds throughout Ireland, new and potential owners through on going support and the general public through support and information provision. While HRI is currently located in Co. Laois we rescue huskies the length and breadth of Ireland from pounds, as strays and owner surrenders Husky Rescue Ireland aims to: Represent and support the work of members of HRI who act on a voluntary basis to care and re-home unwanted, abandoned, stray and ill- treated huskies and akitas in Ireland. Provide care for all dogs in our protection to include: neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, grooming, exercise and food. Promote a responsible attitude by members of the public towards the ownership and welfare of huskies and akitas. Raise awareness amongst the pet-owning community of the benefits of microchipping their pets for identification purposes and the importance of updating these details. Advocate changes in the law in pursuance of the association's purpose. Rehome abused, neglected or abandoned huskies and akitas in Ireland into safe, loving homes, in Ireland and abroad. Rehabilitate traumatized dogs and provide safe loving foster environments in which they can continue to develop and progress with a future view to permanent adoption. Maintain campaigns via the media, internet, information leaflets, advertisements etc. to promote HRI's purpose. Educate adults and children on the work of HRI, animal welfare in Ireland and what it means to be a responsible pet owner. Support owners to keep a family pet, rather than surrender, through giving them advice, assessing their dog and/or referring them to other organisations/people such as dog trainers.
