Last Friday, 23rd July 2021, the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership where delighted to be joined by members from the Enniskillen Soroptimist International Club to plant a number of heritage apple trees at Tully Castle.
This is a part of the Lough Erne Landscape Partnerships ‘Tree’s for Bee’s Campaign’ which is being delivered in partnership with Fermanagh Omagh District Council. These trees are to help to sustain the lives of birds, bees and insects, and support the local food web.
A total of eight trees were planted at the picnic area at Tully Castle with volunteers getting stuck in digging holes, adding compost and staking the trees under the watchful eye of Sarah Jane, a Biodiversity Officer from Fermanagh Omagh District Council.
The ‘Tree’s for Bee’s Campaign’ aims to plant heritage trees at a number of different locations in County Fermanagh and to date has involved a number of local schools and groups.
