Praise for Don’t Mow Let It Grow

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s work to create healthy habitats for pollinators is featured in a new all-Ireland celebration of biodiversity projects.

‘Working Together for Biodiversity – Tales from the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020’ brings together inspirational conservation stories carried out by communities, schools, businesses and local authorities.

Don’t Mow Let It Grow was selected from hundreds of submissions for inclusion, and it’s described in the report as an ambitious and highly successful biodiversity and community engagement project. Working in collaboration with Department for Infrastructure, it encourages the growth of native wildflowers which support our precious pollinators like butterflies, moths and bumble bees.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Mark Fielding said: “The inclusion of Council’s efforts as part of the Don’t Mow Let It Grow initiative shows that we are leading the way in protecting and supporting vital biodiversity across Causeway Coast and Glens.

“This ground-breaking way of working continues to go from strength to strength and I am very proud that Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s work is being held up an example of best practice.”

“Partnership-working is central to this success, and my thanks go to everyone involved, including volunteers within our communities who are so passionate about this.”
