DC’s For Bees 🐝

This Week Denis and 4 Transition Year Students worked on one of our Orchards in the Community which we planted in Westgate Foundation.

In these Mini Orchards which is an initiative by Host in Ireland we have planted apple trees (Boskoop Apple, Katy Apple, Discovery Apple) plum trees (Victoria Plum) Pear Tree ( Conference Pear). They are now planted just over a year and we put some of our own compost around each tree. The TY Students were learning as they worked about this initiative and the importance of the trees for pollinators.

Spring Clean

On Sunday morning the West Village was brightened up by a lovely bright paint job on Velocity Cycles. This job has certainly made a difference and great credit to the Team at Velocity for this. Hopefully it will encourage more traders to freshen up their premises.

The Smell of Freshly Cut Grass

On Monday the lads took the opportunity to cut grass which was well overdue. What a difference it made especially on the Killumney Road. This tree lined avenue entering Ballincollig looked incredible after the grass being cut and it was made better by the beautiful sunshine. They also started cutting at the rear of Muskerry Estate.

Gael Scoil An Caislean

Gael Scoil An Caislean are busy working on their garden and we were glad to assist their efforts by delivering 8 bags of our compost on Tuesday. Jimmy and Sunday were glad to assist their efforts.

Old Fort Road edging

Sunday Tom and Keith had a busy morning working on Old Fort Road edging. They removed 8 bags of edging which were recycled. The work was made so much easier and quicker by using our edging machine.
