Learn How to Plant a Hedgerow

 

Thursday 20th February 11:00

Bready Cricket Club, Magheramason

 

As part of the Strabane & Derry Local Biodiversity Action Plan, a hedgerow planting training event will be held on Thursday 20th February at 11:00am at Bready Cricket Club, just off Mason Road at Magheramason. This course will help you to identify the different hedgerow species, choose your hedge plants, stock proofing and how to plant a hedgerow.

Hedgerows provide food, shelter and act as a wildlife corridor for badgers, rabbits, hedgehogs, bees, birds and bats between woodlands, farmland, parks and gardens. They are important for farming, provide stock proofing and shelter belts for livestock. They help to reduce soil erosion, protect crops and support pollinators.

This event is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Strabane District Council & Derry City Council.  For further information contact Christine Doherty on 02871 365151 or email christine.doherty@derrycity.gov.uk Please wear warm, waterproof clothing and suitable footwear.
