PLANTING FOR THE FUTURE

28 February 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

The sun shone beautifully last Thursday as members of the local community and local community groups gathered in the spring sunshine to plant a living willow fence for the children of Teach na bPaiste at Teach na nDaoine, Oriel Way, Monaghan Town.

The project was a joint venture between the staff of Teach na bPaiste and members of Mullaghmatt/Cortolvin community garden. The willow fence will provide shelter for the children who use the childcare facility as well as giving them the opportunity to study the wildlife that benefit from the structure and contribute to the wellbeing of our local environment.

A big thank you goes out to Breda Treanor who provided the willow and offered her expertise and guidance to the participant’s on the day also to the management and staff of Teach na nDaoine for their support for the project and providing refreshments, members of GIY Monaghan, Monaghans Men’s Shed, Monaghan Community Allotments and the members of the local community who gave up their time to volunteer for this worthwhile project.

It was a very enjoyable experience and full credit to everyone involved, showing that community spirit is a great commodity within our local community and can achieve a lot when put into action.
