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
The main aims of the project
Tackling climate change
Planning for Peak Oil
Maximising local sustainability
Educating children and adults in food
Protection of agricultural
Enhancing local wildlife habitats
