Hometree is a pretty essential idea, plant more trees. Hometree is on the Atlantic coast of Ireland, it’s wet, windy and cold and it’s where they first started a community garden, in an unused plot of ground about 100m elevation and about 600m from the coast. When Hometree planted the first apple trees the NGO were told they were mad, that trees found it difficult to grow here, but they didn’t, they grew tall and strong and produce delicious fruits.

This was Hometree’s reconnection to trees, they saw the birds come back and the soil in the garden improves, biodiversity, more life on the hill and the seeds of change blew in all directions. One direction was here to Hometree, a group of people inspired by the lack of trees in County Clare in West Ireland and hope that they could do our part in regenerating and reforesting this beautiful mythical part of Mother Earth.
