As part of the new Creative Ireland’s DecarbonisingTogether Initiative, Limerick Civic Trust has launched its Urban Orchard Project. Twinned with Cracking Light Productions, a film and media production company and with the support of Limerick City and County Council, we hope to bring back orchards to Limerick. Working with Irish Seed Savers, we have planted 20 Irish heritage apples in the city and hope that they are the start of many. They have been planted by our great CE crews on King’s Island and Grove Island.
The aim of the programme is to reduce our carbon footprint and to offer our community an opportunity to engage with climate action in a fun and meaningful way
