Love in the park for climate action
by Team Love in the Park Ireland
Unlike regular dating apps it doesn’t match you with another person, but with a species of plant, bird, tree or insect.
If you too would like to get matched up and fall in love with a natural species, please feel free to take the quiz and share with your friends and family. No registration required to take the quiz.
Sample Profile from the quiz
I’m Nettle and I’m just itching to meet you!
Yes, known for my itch-inducing sting (I prefer to call it an old tingle), you might have avoided me up to now, so let’s put the record straight; I’m extremely hospitable, running a chain of hotels and eateries frequented by pollinators including the gorgeous Tortiseshell and Peacock butterflies (forgive my namedropping), who with their offspring are hungry regulars.
Other garden stars you might see stopping off chez moi are the striking ladybirds who just love our aphid lunch, which means we take our corporate social responsibility very seriously, protecting gardens and crops from local pests – win win!
And birds too flock to taste my seeds in the late summer to early autumn, so business thrives all year round, once you don’t mow or spray me.
Enough about business; what can I do for YOU? I’m great in the kitchen and am told I make a delicious pesto and cucumbery-spinachy-flavoured soup. I’ve been known for centuries
for my medicinal properties, so if you’re the sporty type who suffers from the odd injury, I can be your anti-inflammatory balm or if your allergies are acting up, you could benefit from my anti-histamine.
Incidentally, I’m associated with the Scorpio sign of the Zodiac, so if you’re up for the challenge, you’ll find someone who’s passionate, determined and intense.
As for my moody sting, well it’s short-lived if you just ignore me for a while. So why not drop by to sample my tasty tingly menu and finally ‘grasp the nettle’. You know you want to….
Yours, Ící Pící
