Tree planting workshop with Solas Glan
4 December 2021
In collaboration with Solas Glan, we partnered with five estates across Navan to officially launch our Dispersed Urban Orchard project. Each estate attended a tree planting workshop at Solas Glan in December to learn how to plant and care for fruit trees. They later received six fruit trees, funded by MCC Community Heritage Grant to be planted in their estates.
The aim of the DUO is to get people together to connect with each other and with nature, and to help local wildlife by creating nature-friendly orchards in estates around Navan to help form a green network for our community to enjoy.
