Our annual Save A Sod campaign, to protect Irish ecosystems and to encourage people to be proactive in the preservation of nature, has launched again.

Save A Sod is a way to contribute and commit to protecting Irish Biodiversity. Launched last year, it is a way to take direct action in response to the climate emergency. This campaign acknowledges that plants, land, animals, watersheds, and humans are all interconnected, forming a web of life – the survival of one depends upon the other.

An ideal gift for Christmas


Save A Sod is the ideal alternative gift for Christmas. It is environmentally friendly and clutter free.

It is a gift that keeps giving: to our families, our friends, to the Irish wildlife and to all its glorious biodiversity.

This gift will also assist us here at Green Sod Ireland in our work by ‘Saving A Sod’ of Ireland.

Funds donated will be used to protect the land and species already in trust.

What better gift to give this festive season than the gift of nature.
A gift for all life on earth.


“Our vision of Ireland is as a country where ecosystems are thriving and flourishing.”


The Save A Sod campaign will help protect wild spaces and Irish Biodiversity from decline.
Put your name to as little as one sod or dedicate one or more to a friend, colleague  or family member.


How to contribute

From €25 you can protect a Sod of Irish land for one year.

Contributors who save one sod will receive a Digital Cert to acknowledge their donation. Those who Save more than one Sod will receive a beautiful Letterpress Certificate. The certificate is hand-made by Dublin Letterpress Studio ‘One Strong Arm’ using card made from recycled coffee cups and printed with ecological ink.

People will also have the option to gift or dedicate Sods in the name of someone. Family and corporate packages are also available.

This year Green Sod Ireland became a member of the European Rewilding Network, becoming one of only two Irish members in an organisation that has 75 rewilding initiatives across 27 different European countries. Through this network we can share with and learn from likeminded organisations across Europe, so we can continue to do our best to protect the biodiversity on our land through rewilding initiatives.
It’s hoped that Green Sod Ireland’s rewilding and community outreach work will strengthen the network’s collective expertise. The network will assist GSI with its rewilding efforts and help realise our overall vision.
