Hi all, An exciting initiative called the "Garden of Eden Projects" has been awarded funding by Clare County Council and the Department of the Environment to part-fund 20 Garden of Eden Projects around Co. Clare. If any of you know of a church, school or other community space that would like to plant a Garden of Eden Project, we are now calling on applications for up to 12 fruit and nut trees per project in Co. Clare. For anybody interested in planting a Garden of Eden Project elsewhere in the country we can offer advice and planting lists, but not the 50% funding at this stage. The main aims of the project are: Tackling climate change Planning for Peak Oil Maximising local sustainability Educating children and adults in food growing Waste minimisation Social inclusion/community participation Protection of agricultural biodiversity Enhancing local wildlife habitats More information can be obtained by emailing [log in to unmask] or by clicking on http://www.wetlandsystems.ie/gardenofedenproject.html.
