We wanted to reach out to the community, and particularly youth, who were so negatively impacted by the pandemic. Working with the schools, we were able to help teachers and students to choose and implement projects, again with Tidy Towns providing advice, equipment and practical facilities. In the past few weeks we worked with a group of students from Selskar College on their Project where they made 2 wooden wheelbarrow planters constructed in Mr. Ryans class.
In a recent collaberation with IT Carlow, Wexford Campus, we provided advice and assistance to student Ilaria Berardi for her concept of an “Earth Bin” Installation. Her innovative creation was displayed on Wexford Quays to enormous interest, and within 2 hours, the “Earth Bin” had been filled with rubbish by passers-by.
