Dolmens Climate Action Group To Celebrate Earth Day

Dolmens Climate Action Network is organising a Hands in the Earth event for Earth Day

Do you fancy a bowl of home-made soup and some pizza and getting a few more plants for your garden ?

Come along to the Pizza and Plants event organised by the Dolmens Climate Action Group and help celebrate Earth Day!

It takes place on Saturday 20th April 2024 from 11am to 2pm based at Castlewellan Community Centre.

Come and get your hands in the earth for Earth Day events in Castlewellan Community Centre.

On Saturday 20 April the Dolmens Climate Action Network is inviting you to a celebration of food, nature and community. 

Everyone is welcome!

Tara Haughian said: “Our members have arranged a lovely afternoon between 11am and 2pm where you can come along and plant some seeds to take home. 

“We have some seedlings that are already growing on a bit and you can take these home and transplant them in your own garden and enjoy the delicious produce later in the year.

“We have some DIY bee and bug hotels to make and bring home as well that may be just as enjoyable for adults as well as children. 

“Making these mini habitats is a great way to support our very important pollinators. 

“So it’s time to get out into nature and enjoy a guided walk up Bunkers Hill and on return to the Community Centre there’s a chance to join in some Earth singing and to finish it all off, we will have pizza and soup. 

“It will all be homemade and even better, made with ingredients that were donated from Fair Shares which collects food just at its best-before date and otherwise, if not sold, it would end up in landfill.”

Tara added: “During the day there will be also be the chance to get some gardening advice from some of our more experienced gardeners who will be on hand and helping out at the event.

“So feel free to come along and enjoy the fun on Earth Day.”
