“We are delighted to announce the return of our showcase community campaign in partnership with the brilliant, enlightened kindred spirits at Energia, Ireland’s greenest energy company. Energia Get Ireland Growing will support food growing in community groups across the island of Ireland with a fund of €70,000! The fund will be split across three categories – Sow, Grow and Harvest with awards ranging from €500 to €2,000. Together GIY and Energia will award the grants to at least 85 community food growing groups up and down the country. We are so looking forward boosting community food growing in such a meaningful way.” (Credit

“One of the top renewable energy companies in Ireland, (Energia is) committed to developing renewable and sustainable energy sources in Ireland. What also drew us to Energia as a partner, is their deep commitment to their employees’ health and wellbeing. A little like companion planting, pair up the GIY community of 150,000 clever, resourceful people with Energia, Ireland’s greenest energy provider, and you get perfect synergy.” (Credit
