Do you know how to plant a native elder tree for free? Learn the technique of harvesting an elder cutting – or magic wand – and watching it grow from Franke Van der Laan of the MeerGroen organisation in the Netherlands who paid a visit to Easy Treesie for National Tree Week 2023.

Hear their inspiring story where “Nature is Our Nursery”. Learn about how to identify an elder tree in your locality so that you can do some harvesting from it once its leaves fall. Introduced by Siobhan Quinn, Administrator and hosted by Brendan Fitzsimons, CEO with a short film from Dr. √Čanna Ni Lamhna, P.R.O. all of the Tree Council of Ireland.

We’re inviting you to plant an elder wand this year, this online workshop will equip you to do that with ease and to in this symbolic and practical way, create space for Biodiversity near your home.

#StopTalkingStartPlanting is the motto of the world trillion tree campaign, join this global UNEP and World Economic Forum-backed project, spearheaded by children’s project Plant-for-the-Planet to bring down global temperature by 1 degree C to buy us 17 years time to implement lasting climate crisis solutions. We are very grateful for our many collaborators in our drive to plant a million trees with Ireland’s million school children and their communities to respond to this call for global action and especially the Irish Environmental Network for their support for this webinar.
