Spring in the air

A lot can happen with social distancing restrictions and a 5km limit. In the last few days the grass has started to grow the tree and fruit buds are getting greener and the birds are getting more vocal. The last of the tree slips are getting planted and  the community orchards and fruit planting  is ongoing. The Acorn project is going ahead full steam with the  Kilkenny Forrest School.  Why not join in and help   with Keep Kilkenny Beautiful.
