“The world is not disposable. We only have one planet, we can keep fixing it and repairing it so it will last longer for our future generation.” These are the words of a 13 year old volunteer at the local city farm in St Anne’s Park, Raheny, Dublin. I was very impressed with the calibre of the writing by the youth volunteers in the May newsletter which is just out. We need all the Greta Thunbergs we can get. Male or female! It doesn’t mean that the adults can relax and hand over the ecological mess to the children. But it does give me a spark of hope for the future.
The local city farm has a lovely vibe to it. The ethos is kindness to animals and the planet. They grow plants in the greenhouse and harvest rainwater for the animals. They have had classes on vegan cooking and candle-making from beeswax, and they regularly upcycle materials to create the structures needed. I visit there to offer some healing to the animals and I can vouch for the place; the animals are well minded and well loved.
They are dependent on donations for funding and one avenue of funding is by signing up for their monthly newsletter for €5 per month. If you want to support them, here is the link. If you are not in a position to donate, please share on your social media to get the word out. Thank you.
