Forest in a Box

Forest in a Box

Forest in a Box is another inspirational project we are actively involved in, designed to inspire you how to grow and create native woodlands in your back garden, community or school.

It is an empowering way of how you can take positive action to tackle climate change.

This project responds to being one of the solutions of The Call of The Forest.



“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”


Preparing our Forest in a Box

   What’s the                       process?


How is this done and what does it do?

We teach you all about trees, their benefits, collect native Irish tree seeds, and then teach you how to build a Forest in a Box.

We will work together to build one metre square wooden boxes and use them as Native Tree Seedling Propagation System replicating a Dunemann system for growing trees.

After 2 years of propagation approximately 200 tree saplings will grow in each box enabling you to plant out and create your own woodland.

An amazing and magical project!
