Green Sod Ireland "Bee Aware" Education Programme for Primary Schools

























Comments from the Claddagh National School, Galway


We had great fund learning about bees and wanting to help feed them.

Working together in the garden was so much fun and the compost blowing in our eyes to clear out the boxes and patches for our plants was worth it.

I found it to be a great bonding exercise, as everyone helped one another, and working together in the outside environment on a sunny day was very enjoyable.

A most enjoyable fun workshop that gets the children fully involved, with great visual cues for the children.

The value of Ireland's land goes far beyond the monetary.

Yet we must rely on the financial support of those who believe that

its worth is intrinsic and that the diverse indigenous species

who depend upon it deserve our protection and respect.


We are a volunteer-led organisation,

and all funds raised go directly to our programs for land and education.


Our Save a Sod campaign embodies our core belief:

plants, animals, land, watersheds, and humans are all interconnected -

the survival of one depends on the other.

Did you know that  . . .


"We need foraging areas, for bees and other beneficial insects, to detox and restore immune functions"?

Dr Marla Spivak, Distinguished Professor of Entomology, Minnesota.


Providing food and shelter across all types of land helps bee pollinators to, not only survive, but thrive?

What can we do?
  1. Accept that pollination is important
  2. Recognise that there is a problem
  3. Plant native wild flowers in your area - in flowerpots to fields
  4. Support Green Sod Ireland's framework for positive action
