Volunteer Opportunity – Seed Collecting

Volunteer Opportunity – Seed Collecting

We are starting a native tree and wildflower nursery at Slieve Gullion Courtyard which will give locals the opportunity to learn how best to collect, process and propagate the seeds of our native trees and wildflowers.  Once the trees and wildflowers are ready to be planted in their permanent homes they will be freely available to anyone in the Ring of Gullion area.  The purpose of the nursery is to help improve local biodiversity by providing habitats for our native wildlife and food for our pollinators.

We are looking for volunteers to help with seed collecting and processing from trees such as oak, hazel and hawthorn around the Slieve Gullion Courtyard area.  Depending on the weather there may also be the opportunity to collect and plant heather seeds.

All tools and safety equipment will be provided; all you need to bring with you is weather appropriate clothing, sturdy footwear (hiking boots are ideal) and a packed lunch.

We’ll be meeting in the Slieve Gullion Courtyard at the gate into the pond area of the courtyard.

Please register for this event, if you are interested, as it will not go ahead if there are not sufficient numbers.
