Europe’s leading cooked and fermented meat ingredients company, Naas-based Dawn Farms, have teamed up with the local Men’s Shed to build bird homes and bee hotels as part of a biodiversity initiative at their food campus in Naas.
Barry Gallagher, in charge of sustainability projects at Dawn Farms said: “It’s a win-win for both of us. The bird homes and bee hotels are made from left-over wood pallets and will be placed safely around our site as part of a biodiversity project. They will also be on offer to all staff. To express our gratitude, we have donated a defibrillator to the Men’s Shed which they in turn will make available to the Rathasker Road community and the Naas First Responders Group.”
The primary objective of the Men’s Shed movement is to advance the health and wellbeing of participating members by creating a safe, friendly and inclusive environment where men from the local community can gather and undertake community projects.
REMINDER: All Dawn Farms employees are invited to request a bee hotel or bird house by emailing Barry Gallagher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
