About Our Partner
- The Community Foundation

The Community Foundation for Ireland is the first Community Foundation in Ireland, part of a global network of 1800 community foundations.

The Community Foundation for Ireland and its partners believe in equality for all in thriving communities.

Thanks to funding from The Community Foundation Ireland, GIY has been able to pilot GROW At School – a school food growing and research programme – in 32 primary schools across Ireland. GROW at School will examine the impact of food growing on primary schools and their students over the course of three years.

GIY stories

Meet some of our GIYers (that’s people who grow some of their own food) who all champion Food Empathy – a deeper understanding and connection with food from their experience of growing. If you want food done right, then grow it yourself.
