THE Mayor of town and county of Limerick has formally opened the Guru Nanak Sacred Forest at Templeglatine.
Mayor Foley was joined by Dr Jagdeep Singh from EcoSikh Eire for the disclosing of two plaques on the just lately planted micro forest.
Commenting on the official opening, Dr Singh mentioned: “It was my pleasure to unveil the stone marker and infoboard signage
accompanied by the EcoSikh Eire crew, alongside Mayor Foley and the neighborhood at Templeglantine. We hope it should present inspiration and context to all new guests at this particular website.”
Over 1,000 timber have been donated by the Sikh neighborhood and opening ceremony follows the profitable planting day which happened in March.
Micro forests are planted primarily based on the ideas of the Miyawaki Technique. The tree species used develop naturally and range in measurement to create a multi layered forest that promotes biodiversity. Bushes are planted densely and develop as much as ten instances quicker than conventionally grown forests.
Situated beside the native major faculty and reverse the Holy Trinity Church, the micro forest can also be simply accessible to guests passing on the close by Limerick Greenway.
