sat 11 April 09

We are getting our community garden ready for the coming growing season,as we have had our seed sharing event we are just waiting to have our seeds come back from all our committed gardeners.As when we get our seedlings up and growing they will be planted in the garden so all can see the fruits of their labour.

Doing some garden chores.

Close up of one of our compost bins in a very healthy state.

Very nice compost made from all green waste.

Some of our visitor's from Islandbridge helping with watering.

Getting a helping hand.

Hi Barbara
You are all welcome to come along this Saturday from 1pm and meet the community gardeners and see how you might be able to get involved.

Hi there. I live on Reuben Street and I've always wanted to join the community garden and chip in with my rusty forks but haven't yet got around to contacting ye. I will do it soon. I noticed walking by the other day that there is what appears to be a Giant Hogweed flourishing on site. This is a non-native invasive plant, a scourge of our inland water ways, and should be removed by the root from site, with great care taken as the sap can cause very unpleasant blistering.

South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project

The South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project started in April 2007. We have a derelict site on loan from ST Salvage Company that we have converted into a community food garden. This is a continuation of the initial successful Dolphins Barn Community squatted food garden that was on the canal from 2005 -2007.
