Join the Acorn Project for a series of nature based workshops that celebrate our woods and trees this Autumn with community groups across Kilkenny. Registration required.
The Acorn Project is delighted to receive support from the Department of Agriculture Forestry Support Fund for our community seedsaving and tree nursery project. We are excited to be working with Irish Seedsavers and Wastedown to deliver advanced training to community groups to create tree nurseries with locally sourced native seed and reimagine our public spaces as tree nurseries. We will also be working with local artist Rachel Burke and Monica Hayes to celebrate our connection with nature through story and creative practice.
We will be running a series of free seedsaving and forest school events in partnership with communities across Kilkenny :
Thomastown Seedsaving Walk : Sat 25th Sept @ 11am
Free Events: Booking Necessary https://slinacoille.ie/events
