Bloom in the Park 2019
Fingal County Council's Fingal Bee Positive Garden has won a Gold Medal at Bloom.
Fingal County Council is delighted to once again collaborate with TU Dublin and DDLETB on our garden for Bloom in the Park 2019. The Fingal Bee Positive Garden has a pollinator friendly theme and is a refection of our commitment as a Pollinator partner in the All Ireland Pollinator Plan and our recognition of the importance of Climate Action.
Fingal County Council’s 2019 Show Garden emphasises the importance of pollinators within our rapidly urbanizing environments. The garden is designed by Fingal County Council and TU Dublin with help from garden designer, Jane McCorkell, and demonstrates how to create and protect habitats for pollinators – including bees and many other insect species – within a usable, outdoor recreation space. It features a pathway so visitors can walk through the garden and learn more about pollinators. A large honeycomb wall is decked with fun facts, and offers a glimpse of the working beehive on the other side of the screen. This “Pollinator Friendly” concept garden is particularly targeted at children to increase their understanding and awareness of the importance of pollinators and help to sustain a diverse range of pollinator insect species for the future.
