Biodiversity Project – planting of fruit trees at 16 Community Centres as part of the Keen to be Green Fingal Community Facilities initiative.

News General News

The Fingal Community Management Support Unit ,in partnership with the Fingal Community Facilities Network with assistance from the Operations team in FCC, planted 90 fruit trees in 16 Community Centres that participated in the project within the Facilities Network – this was part of a Biodiversity project and the Keen to be Green initiative which took place as part of tree week 2024.

Fruit tree types included plum, pear and plum to name a few -with a great variety planted at each Centre.

The aim was to make better use of the green areas within the centres, to achieve a ‘mini orchard’ for each Community facility taking part. An orchard is made up of a minimum of five fruit trees but it is hoped over time that each facility will expand on this themselves and provide an opportunity for the community to avail of the fruit produced on an annual basis along with encouraging communities to become more self sufficient and show how biodiversity can be part of everyday life.

Funding for the project was provided by the Fingal Community Development Office through the Activity Funding Scheme.

Pictures of the project can be seen below – with thanks again to the Operations team in FCC in particular who provided great assistance with the planting.
