The Cill Ulta Glasshouse Redevelopment launch took place on 13 May in Falcarragh. The newly redeveloped glasshouse by Lárionad Acmhainní Nádúrtha CTR was officially opened by the Minister for Agriculture, Food, and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD.
A Ghaeltacht Ghlas - the sustainable development of the Green Economy in the Gaeltacht region is a priority goal in the Údarás na Gaeltachta 2021 - 2025 Strategy.
Partnership and collaboration between Údarás na Gaeltachta and social enterprises such as the Cill Ulta project will be a key element towards achieving this goal.
Údarás na Gaeltachta has invested €250,000 in the retrofit of the glasshouse, which encompasses one acre of land and, in line with sustainability/circular economy principles, has used recycled materials as part of the redevelopment.
LAN CTR installed on-site rainwater catchment reservoirs and a particle filtration/UV sterilization system, and the soil used in the glasshouse is developed on-site through the application of compost made from production waste, community-supplied manure, and seaweed.
