The work of Killorglin Tidy Town is made so much more pleasant and easy due to the help and cooperation we get from so many of our local groups and organisations. Just one such venture is the setting up of our 2 new Slí na Sláinte routes in the town, financed by SKDP and our own Killorglin WOMAN 2000 group. The signage was then all put in place for us byTony O’Malley, Patrick O’Shea, John Linehan and Terrance Houlihan from the CE Scheme. What wonderful things we can achieve by working together! Thanks Guys.
As part of the Killorglin Greening Communities programme and KTT’s waste management initiatives, Declan Crowley from Grow-It-Yourself Killorglin, visited the Woman 2000 group today at the KCYMS and gave a
delightful and highly entertaining talk about his long experience of growing
vegetables. But first he set the stage with a wonderful array of gardening
implements, herbs, seedlings, a hessian sack full of oats grown by his son, a prepared window box and assorted small plastic containers of little plants. It looked gorgeous. The talk itself was wide ranging and covered not only the specific topic of growing your own food but other green topics such as saving air miles (reducing CO2 emissions) and conserving our local biodiversity. Woman 2000 thoroughly enjoyed the enthralling session – an easy going and pleasant way to become more aware of green matters. Thanks Declan.
