Designed by Jane McCorkell, Landscape Architect and Horticulture Lecturer at TU Dublin Blanchardstown, and developed in Partnership with Fingal County Council and DDLETB, the "Fingal Bee Positive" garden aims to emphasise the importance of pollinators within rapidly urbanising environments. The garden also demonstrates how to create and protect habitats for pollinators - including bees and many other insect species - within a usable, outdoor recreation space.
"Bee Positive" is a reflection of both TU Dublin and Fingal County Council's commitment as a Pollinator Partner in the All Ireland Pollinator Plan and our recognition of the importance of Climate Action.
We congratulate all involved in this achievement.
