The Tree Nursery Pack is now online thanks to the Heritage Council – open it from the Tree Nursery Project page on our website to learn how to make your own tree nursery in school, home or community garden.
The Tree Nurseries in Schools project was carried out throughout the Autumn term. Caherleeheen NS, Flemby NS, Nuachnabhail NS, Blennerville NS, Ardfert NS and Shanakill Community Garden successfully grew over 200 trees from seed gathered in Ballyseedy Woods. Each group had a trip to Ballyseedy Woods to gather more seed to restock the tree nursery and to plant trees that were grown in the first year of the project. The tree nursery project was rolled out to Co Meath; KEEP ran a weeks training course for educators in Sonairte (the National Ecology Centre). The project was made possible with funding from the Heritage Council.
