The orchards, located at Pobal Eascarragh, Falcarragh and at the Termon Complex in Pettigo, were planted over two days by young people from TY and youth groups with the support of local community centre staff and local volunteers. They consist of apple, pear, plum and cherry trees, planted in conjunction with OURganic Gardens, an outdoor educational garden focused on food growing and re-connection. As part of the initiative young people explored themes around connecting with others and the benefits being active in nature can have for your mental health and wellbeing.
