The one million trees in one day project which was to take place on Friday and Saturday has had to be postponed. Due to a lack of funding the project could not be completed in full. Swinford Tidy Towns had a large number of trees of various varieties on order from the charity, which were being supplied to us completely free. One million trees in one day have assured us that we will receive our full allocation of trees which we ordered, once the funding is fully in place. Due to the timing constraints of planting trees, it will now be October/November at the earliest that the planting will now take place, should the project become fully funded. To donate €3 to the project please text “Donate Trees” to 57777.
Thanks to everyone that volunteered for the planting over the weekend. I’m sorry that I could not have let you all know about the postponement earlier, as it was 11.30 Thursday night that I got confirmation that we would not be getting our full allocation for the weekend. We are working with our horticulturist’s Anita and Miriam on finding suitable locations for the trees that we did recieve in our starter pack. We will keep everyone updated about the project and you can also sign up to our free monthly newsletter on the site.
