Servecentric supports “Orchards in the Community” to plant over 3,500 orchards across Island of Ireland

Servecentric supports the planting of 10 orchards at St Finian’s National School, Clonard

To help protect bees, increase pollination and support bio-diversity, Servecentric is delighted to participate in Host in Ireland’s “Orchards in the Community” initiative. Servecentric is part of 73 pledging companies that have contributed to the planting of over 3587 mixed fruit orchards across the Island of Ireland. As part of the programme, 222 schools and colleges and 171 community groups from tidy towns, retirement homes, community centres, and local sports facilities have received and planted orchards in their communities.

Orchards provide vital green spaces in our cities and towns and with 33% of our 99 wild bee species at risk of extinction. These orchards provide bees with food as they struggle when emerging from winter.

Servecentric’s support is resulting in the planting of 10 orchards in the grounds of St. Finian’s National School, Clonard, Co. Meath.

“Orchards are a focal point for communities to connect people with nature. Growing orchards in the community helps raise awareness of our connection to our food sources and play an important role in biodiversity and the plight of bees in Ireland,” said Garry Connolly, founder, Host in Ireland. “That spirit of community is alive and well with ‘Orchards in the Community’ as organisations like Servecentric come together with biodiversity groups, schools, colleges, Tidy Towns and others across Ireland to tackle challenges like biodiversity loss to save Ireland’s pollinators.”

“It is important for us to support this creative initiative led by Host In Ireland. We all have a role to play in preserving our falling native Bee, Butterfly and other pollinator populations and we’re delighted to work with local communities in the campaign to reverse this trend.” added Brian Roe, CEO, Servecentric Ltd.
