Saturday 18th and 25th May at 11 and at 12 noon; 45 minutes long event
Meet at the start of the Dublin Tree trail, just to the left of the Red Stables as you look at the courtyard.
We are planting apple trees in the City Farm as part of this tour, in a little ceremony to launch their woodland orchard garden! Join Orla Farrell, creator of the Irish Tree Trail film series and founder of Ireland’s easy treesie – Crann project for a little walk along the Dublin Tree Trail. We will have a chat about the dozen or so native trees we will meet. This walk forms part of the UN-backed world wide trillion tree initiative by Plant-for-the-Planet. Ireland’s children have planted 15,008 trees in parks and on public lands all over the country with this project. The goal; to plant 1 million by 2023 with Ireland’s million school children. Learn about how we have planted trees on public lands like Malahide Castle Demesne, Newbridge House Demesne, Tolka River Valley Park, on roadsides and even in hospitals. We will meet at the start of the Tree Trail seen in the picture, which is between the Red Stables (just to the left as you face the courtyard) and the children’s playground. Car parking available at the Red Stables or on Mount Prospect Avenue, Clontarf or on All Saints’ Road, Raheny. The walk is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies apart from one area with short grass which can be skipped. A raincoat is recommended as the event will take place rain or shine.
