OUR BIODIVERSITY FARM

This is a concept demo website for ideation & brainstorming purposes only. It does not represent a real school, and it is not sponsored or endorsed by any company.

Our school holds a Virtual Stewardship over a dedicated patch of farmland within the IrishBiodiversity Farm. It represents our connection to the earth, to farming and to nature.

In particular, it symbolises our responsibility to care for nature & to promote biodiversity right here in our school, our town, our area.

We’re working together with other schools (as they assume virtual stewardship of their Biodiversity Farms) to reconnect with nature and farming while restoring biodiversity, area byarea, right across Ireland.

BIODIVERSITY IN VIRTUAL REALITY

OUR FARM IN VR

We need to be able to visit & enjoy our farm! We will soon be able to do this in person (with the school) – and right now, we can visit any time we want, through Virtual Reality!

VR Farm brings our Biodiversity Farm to us, to explore, learn & enjoy. Better again, it can be accessed through your browser – no VR headset needed (although it looks great there, too).

VR Farm is an open-source project, and over time we will work with others across Ireland to use VR to support Biodiversity in our towns – promoting nature and learning cutting-edge technologies as we do so!

WELLBEING, MENTAL HEALTH, FARMING & NATURE

This is a concept demo website for ideation & brainstorming purposes only. It does not represent a real school, and it is not sponsored or endorsed by any company.

We are a part of nature, and nature is critical to our health. It can be hard to find the time to connect with nature and care for ourselves, though – both mentally and physically.

Part of the BiodiversityFarm and BiodiversitySchool mission is to reconnect people with nature in ways that nurture our mental and spiritual health. Our livestream media and Virtual Reality experiences are, in part, designed to help achieve this.

Likewise, healthy natural nutrition is essential for physical and mental health. Learning about nutrition and understanding food from farm to table is an important part of being our best.

BIODIVERSTIY, CLIMATE ACTION & SCIENCE ON YOUR FARM

This is a concept demo website for ideation & brainstorming purposes only. It does not represent a real school, and it is not sponsored or endorsed by any company.

“Biodiversity” describes the immense variety of life on Earth. Modern life is causing huge damage to biodiversity, however – we’re killing species and damaging nature in gravely serious ways.

“Biodiversity collapse”, as this problem is known, is closely associated with Climate Change. The solutions to both are often related, too.

The core mission of our Biodiversity Farm is to promote action to restore biodiversity while helping fight climate change – right across Ireland, from farms to schools, families, towns - and nationwide.

In particular, we bring scientists & specialists together to create, share & monitor plans & processes to promote biodiversity on the farm. See this community in action, then “jump into science” & take part when you can help.
