About Our Partner
- Tomar Trust

We are delighted to partner with a number of corporate, philanthropic and media organisations that share our aims and help GIY to carry out it’s work. We couldn’t do what we do without them!

The Tomar Trust is a philanthropic trust that aims to contribute to strengthening Irish society over 10 years 2016-2026.

The Trust aims to deepen its commitment to rural Ireland, to the building of strong communities and resilient young people, and aims to address some of the big issues facing Ireland today and investing in the solutions to solve them. Supported by the Tomar Trust, our Community Classrooms campaign aims to establish, support and fund a network of 30 community gardens around Ireland over the next three years (2020-2023) that directly engage with primary schools and provide outdoor, living classrooms for pupils, staff and community members.

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.
