Hometree: Fundraiser for “Hometree Avoca"

Hometree

Hometree are now seeking donations and sponsoring partners to help us afforest and conserve our newest site near Avoca, County Wicklow!!

Hometree is a registered charity establishing and conserving permanent native woodland in Ireland. We promote land regeneration and biodiversity through afforestation, restoration, and education programmes. With stewardship as our core value, we seek to nourish a new way of relating to nature conservation and rehabilitation.

Hometree is raising money to help pay for our first site in Leinster. “Hometree Avoca” is a 2.3 acre site located a few miles from Avoca village in County Wicklow. As our first project in the East of Ireland, we can now expand our afforestation network beyond our Headquarter sites near Ennistimon, County Clare.

Our fundraising target is €42,000. This amount will cover the cost of the site and all initial works on the site to convert it to permanent native woodland and build a small shelter to facilitate education sessions. To help reach our goal, we’re asking you to consider helping in one of the following ways:

  • Donate or Pledge Trees. You can donate or make a Tree Pledge on behalf of someone, such as your employees, customers, family members, or friends. Every tree you pledge will be planted and maintained in perpetuity at the Hometree Avoca site. You can donate here: www.hometree.ie/avoca and if you’d like to pledge trees, just email us at avoca@hometree.ie. You can pledge a single native tree for just €10, which includes a donation towards Hometree Avoca.
  • Become a Hometree Restoration Member. Hometree offers regular membership to individuals and companies who make a monthly donation of €30 or more. Joining our Restoration Membership program means you stay connected to Hometree’s ever-growing network and can participate in ensuring your contribution makes an impact. Members receive our newsletter, biodiversity impact and other reports, and get to attend our planting and maintenance days, seminars, and events.
  • Partner with Hometree. Hometree partners are individuals or organizations who wish to make a significant or tailored contribution to Hometree. Our partners include all types of businesses and other organizations, and each one enjoys a special collaborative relationship with us.

We are actively seeking partners for the Hometree Avoca project and would be excited to discuss with you how you or your organization might get involved and make a significant impact. You can read more about some of Hometree’s partners here: https://www.hometree.ie/partners, or contact us at avoca@hometree.ie

Only 11% of Ireland is covered in forest, far below the EU average. What’s more, only 1% of Irish forests are native woodland. But with your help, Hometree’s afforestation, conservation, and education programs can turn this around.
