Pop Up Forest – Cork Art Project
We worked with TEST SITE, Collaboration with a City and Home Tree Ireland this summer. The artists created a space for art, architecture, ecology and urban planning in the heart of Cork City, with the support of Cork County Council. Home Tree installed 300 native trees and our team in An Choill Bheag provided the understory wild plant layers and educational signage. We were also invited to facilitate some short nature walk workshops with various groups in late July. This included activities such as learning about the native trees, learning about Ogham, creating a small pond habitat and ecosystem restoration. It was a lovely collaboration and the trees will be dispersed out to communities and schools this coming Autumn.
