Tidy Towns and Community Groups – Actions for Biodiversity
Are you a community group or Tidy Town’s Group that needs help to develop plans or projects?
I have recently worked with Kiltegan Tidy Towns (West Wicklow) helping them to develop an ambitious 3 year Tidy Towns plan. In east Carlow, I have worked closely with Clonmore Tidy Towns in the development in their Biodiversity Action Plan.
With Local Agenda 21 grants from Wicklow and Wexford County Councils, I have delivered a range of talks & workshops aimed at helping people who want to protect and improve local biodiversity by giving them the knowledge, and better practices for them to enhance private and public spaces for themselves and for our flora and fauna.
Gardeners, and community workers are so well placed to make a difference to their local biodiversity. Actions identified at county level (Heritage Action Plans/Biodiversity Action Plans) to raise awareness of biodiversity, promote more sustainable practices and protect biodiversity are incorporated into these workshops
Schools – The All Ireland Pollinator Plan
Do you need help developing or improving your school garden? As a qualified horticulturist with excellent experience working in the garden and nursery sector, I can help students bring the school garden alive that is rich in colour for the students and our pollinators.
Need help bringing nature into the classroom and animating the role of plants and pollinators in the lives of kids? I have worked with a range of schools on food and pollination themes, and tree themes.
Lead and organise heritage & wildlife walks
Specialising in a range of themes based on my experiences – this service is aimed at school and community groups that wish to celebrate their local nature site (including nature on school grounds) during the year or on key dates (National Tree Day in October, National Tree Week in March, May’s Biodiversity Week and Heritage Week in August).
