Plant a Seed Day
Would you like to play a part in one of the very first steps in the creation of a native woodland? Then come along to the Native Woodland Trust’s volunteer day on Saturday 18th October from 11am to 1pm at our Laragh nursery.
The Native Woodland Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to the protection of Ireland’s rare native and ancient woodland. The Trust achieves this by setting up woodland reserves around the country, such as our Laragh Reserve. This reserves network allows the Trust to protect existing woodland as well as plant new native woodland for the future. Part of the work we do involves running educational and fun events for our members and the public to encourage more people to use their local woodlands.
At the Native Woodland Trust we like to gather seed from our own reserves so that we can use it to plant more trees on our sites. On previous volunteer days we collected acorns and hazelnuts and now it is time to plant them in our nursery. This volunteer day is suitable for anyone who doesn’t mind getting their hands a bit dirty! It is a great opportunity for children to come along and take part in our woodland work.
The meeting point for this event will be at 11am at the Brockagh centre car park, Laragh. For a map and further details please check our website www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie or the events section of our Facebook page. This event will run from 11am to 1pm and all are welcome.
