This week Radio Kerry looked at the important role of allotments in urban settings to provide havens for nature, allow people to live sustainably by growing their own fruit and veg and learn skills like saving rain water and composting.
Did you know…
There are three allotments in Tralee, one in Moyderwell, one in the Rahooanne/Shanakill area and one in Marion Park.
Why are allotments important?
Allotments offers havens for nature, allow people to live sustainably by growing their own fruit and veg and learn skills like saving rain water and composting.
They are an oasis for nature in urban areas.
They also offer people the chance to socialise, learn new skills and reduce their carbon footprint.
What can I do to help?
If you want to do your bit for nature, consider growing your own veg, in an allotment or if you have space in your garden or balcony.
You’ll have nutritious food and reduce your carbon footprint!
