Energia GIG Ambassador and Presenter of What Planet are You on, Maia Dunphy says “It’s crucial that we are all learning how to become more sustainable as the future of our nation depends on it.
"I’ve recently enrolled in a Masters in Climate Change to help further expand my knowledge on helping to protect our planet. It’s initiatives like the Energia Get Ireland Growing campaign that are so important and help show how we can all do our part in creating a more sustainable future for Ireland. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can still start growing on your windowsill or balcony, like I do.
"It’s so rewarding when you can eat what you’ve grown from a simple seed, I challenge everyone to give it a go this summer and try grow your own!”
