Case study # 2: Tidy Towns Special Pollinator Award 2016 National Champions: ‘Monaghan: Trees for Bees – Biodiversity Town and the Push for Pollinators’
Group: Monaghan Tidy Towns
As part of their Dispersed Urban Orchard project, Monaghan Tidy Towns purchased heritage varieties of fruit trees from SeedSavers and sold them for a fiver to Monaghan Town residents. The locations of all planted trees were mapped by the group to ensure that a network of pollinator friendly flowering resources provided food throughout the whole town.
