Green Living Open Day at Bog of Allen Nature Centre

You are invited to a Green Living open day at the Bog of Allen Nature Centre, Lullymore, Rathangan, Co. Kildare on Sunday 26th September from 2pm-5pm. 

Nuala Madigan, the Irish Peatland Conservation Council’s Environmental Education Officer will present a talk on Living Sustainably, which will include composting, wildlife gardening and water and energy conservation in the home. 

This is the perfect time of year to get composting.  Leaves are starting to block drains and cause a slip hazard; over the next couple of weeks we will be clearing away dead plants in our gardens and doing the last lawn cut of the year and your composting bin is the ideal place to convert this waste into nutrient rich compost for your garden.   Up to a third of household waste can be composted alone and does’nt it make sense to reuse this waste rather then sending it to a landfill site?

The presentation will conclude with a guided walk through the gardens of the Bog of Allen Nature Centre.  The peatland museum and wildlife gardens at the centre will be open for visitors to enjoy and the nature shop is stocked full of nature gifts for friends and family. 

This event is free and all are welcome to attend.
