Transition Town Kinsale are taking part in this amazing ambitious project to help plant one million trees around Ireland in one day.
The trees will be planted at the Community Orchard, which is located on the site of Saile Community Sports and Leisure Centre, this Saturday 27th April from 10am. We need the help of the community to make this happen. We will be preparing the ground, clearing and mulching around the existing trees and planting our new trees. Tools will be provided and it will be a fun day for all!
'One Million Trees in One Day is a charity, not-for-profit, cross-border, community and environmental initiative which aims to plant a million young native trees at many different sites across both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in 24 hours.
We will establish individual trees and woodlands in both rural and urban areas that will grow for many many years and which will provide valuable resources, beneficial ecosystem services and a lasting legacy for future generations.
Planting a million trees in one day is a great challenge. We believe that many hands make light work; the more people joining the huge team that will bring this project to fruition, the easier the job will be. It might rain, it might snow, it could be the hottest day of the yearâ€¦ but weâ€™re going to give it our very best shot'.
We hope to see you there!
