first_imgJuly 22, 2002The bee colonies in the Arcosanti Gardens have been busy. The very light and tasty honey is harvested by putting the trays into a centrifugal extractor. [Photo & Text: SA] Bee-keeper Tom Dobuovitch [right] is operating the hand-crank on the extractor. His helper is scraping the smoke-stunned bees from a tray before the tray gets inserted into the extractor. This is a very compact and efficient operation right on the back of Tom’s pick-up truck. [Photo & Text: SA] The honey harvest happened very timely. Or maybe this bear smelled it from far away. The bear has been an evening visitor in camp for a few days now and on his first visits took apart some of the bee colonies. Tom and resident Gregor Knauer had to build a sturdy new fence around the hives. [Photo: Stephen Ramsey & Text: SA]last_img read more

The move follows an Expression of Interest exercis

first_imgThe move follows an Expression of Interest exercise undertaken by DfC to test the appetite for investment in the Fort George site. Paul McNaught from the Department for Communities said: “Fort George is a strategic regeneration site that has huge potential to create real social and economic benefits for the City.“The Department is committed to maximising its potential and is therefore delighted to work with the Trust to explore this ambitious development which not only delivers key central Government priorities but is also in line with the Strategic Growth Plan adopted by Derry City and Strabane District Council.“Remediation works at the site have now been completed and Outline Planning Permission is in place. The site is well placed to progress to the next step.” ShareTweet Dr Bob Brown, Director of Primary Care & Older People within the Western Health and Social Care Trust, added: “The Trust is committed to the delivery of this Cityside Health and Care Centre project which is seen as a high priority for investment.“This development will enable both Trust and GP Medical Practices to work together to further expand and enhance local health and social care services currently delivered from widely dispersed accommodation throughout the City. “This will also facilitate the roll out of primary care multi-disciplinary teams – a development already at pilot stage with approximately 200 posts planned for the WHSCT area. “Allied to these direct health service employments, it is envisaged that the implementation of a Data City Health Analytics Project, via C-TRIC as part of the City Deal submission will create approximately 250 additional posts initially, a proportion of which will be located at Fort George.”The development of a Cityside Health and Care Centre is anticipated to bring up to 500 whole time equivalent permanent jobs (new and relocated) which will deliver mostly nursing, social work, allied health professional and administrative roles. The Health and Care Centre is a critical project within the Department of Health’s Primary Care Infrastructure Development (PCID) programme and is an essential element of the transformational agenda for health and social care.Fort George site explored as location for new primary health care hub was last modified: February 21st, 2019 by John2John2 Tags: THE Department for Communities (DfC) and the Western Health and Social Care Trust (WHSCT) have entered an agreement to enable the Trust to further develop the proposal of locating a new Cityside Health and Care Centre at Fort George creating up to 500 jobs.The agreement, initially for 12 months, will give the WHSCT time to get the necessary business case approvals and funding confirmed.
