I have a number of reasons, not least being that I'd like to live somewhere that doesn't have all the crap our present society entails. It's possible that by starting somewhere fresh we might be able to leave all that behind.But there's a more obscure reason I like the idea.A couple of years after I left school, I came across graphology. I was fascinated by the idea that you could discern deep…See More

Using the website above we hope to plant 1000 Trees in Ireland towards the goal.

 

While I have little time for the UN, many of its links are useful. It could also help get us publicity and increase awareness of our project, so if you would like to participate please join under Ireland (even if you live elsewhere and will plant elsewhere).

 

all the best,

Donal

Successful sequestration of carbon in… Continue
