Rewild in the City
The Phoenix Park is awaiting your discovery…

Here is home to deer, mice, badgers, foxes, buzzards, sparrowhawks, owls & squirrels. A place rich in tree and plant life, as well as fungi, lichens & mosses.

In this abundant playground we will reclaim our food and medicine, cultivate our childhood curiosity and expand our awareness through the learning of ancestral skills, nature connection activities and community building.

Each month, we will focus on a new theme or skill which connects us to our environment, as well as to our ancestral past and a more sustainable future.
