  • Cork
    Say No To Mow & Spray in Co. Cork
    During this pandemic, many of our green areas have been allowed to grow wild, with no council mowing ongoing. Which is great! Green areas have been allowed to flourish with flowers growing through them. Widespread population declines of bees and other pollinators from habitat loss are a growing concern. However, spontaneous flowers like dandelions and clover can provide pollen and nectar sources throughout the growing season....... Therefore, please don't mow, don't spray, let them grow!

  • Naas
    Say No to Mow in Co. Kildare
    During this pandemic, many of our green areas have been allowed to grow wild, with no council mowing ongoing. Green areas have been allowed to flourish, so that we have yellows, purples, blues, whites, as well as lush green grass. When council workers are allowed to return, we want to keep wild the areas that don't require mowing (e.g. grass verges, fields in which only the edges are walked).

  • Kilkenny
    Say No to the Mow in Kilkenny
    I want the council to protect the flowers, bugs and bees which have benefitted greatly in the areas which have been allowed to grow naturally. These also benefit the birds which feed on insects. Please allow hedgerows to grow higher and wider to support larger amounts of wildlife

  • Say No to Mow in Co. Meath
    We have an opportunity to let previously mowed areas rewild and increase biodiversity to create better amenities for all of us. During this pandemic, many of our green areas have been allowed to grow wild, with no council mowing ongoing. Green areas have been allowed to flourish, so that we have yellows, purples, blues, whites, as well as lush green grass. When council workers are allowed to return, we want to keep wild the areas that don't require mowing (e.g. grass verges, fields in which only the edges are walked). Letting previously managed areas rewild will save the council money and the maintenance budget can be used elsewhere for other social initiatives. The benefits go far beyond the rewilded areas.
