The trees in Ballycleary,(just 5 minutes’ drive from Kinvara), require a lot of after-care, such as mulching or trampling of weeds, as we are trialling the Miyawaki method there. Volunteers are always welcome to come for an hour ortwo. If interested, please contact 0872279071 to hear of our next meitheal or to join the Volunteer Whatsapp. You can follow us on FB/Insta @KBtreegang, but we tend to only announce big planting days|
