We are delighted that we now have our Work Sheets translated into Ukrainian, and
would like to thank our friends in Ireland from Ukraine for working on this with us.

As part of Green Foundation Ireland’s project, “Our Soil Underfoot – Protecting our underground life”, our Researcher CIARAN MONAHAN has developed an Educational Module for Transition Year Students. This module forms a resource for a 6-8 week module on Soils and Soil Stewardship, including teacher’s resource, a lesson plan, work sheets and information, definitions and links to web resources.

The module focusses on topics such as sustainability, soil functions and biodiversity, and soil stewardship. The module, which was drawn up on behalf of Green Foundation Ireland in March 2022, is designed to reinforce learning and build presentation skills via the completion of practical experiments, as well as a research presentation project.
