About Energia Get Ireland Growing

Last year we gave 85 communities a share of a whopping €70,000 Get Ireland Growing Fund and this year we are back once again to give community food growing projects the cash boost they need to Get Ireland Growing.

The Fund

The fund will be split across three categories – Sow, Grow and Harvest with awards ranging from €500 to €2,000. But this year one amazing community will receive €5,000 for their initiative! 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.
