On Saturday Willie gave the Eco Unesco youth group a tour of the garden. Seoidín then led an art workshop with them in St Andrews community Centre. It was National Drawing day on Saturday and the young people made drawings in response to there garden visit. The group also created Seed Bombs with wild flower seeds to throw into derelict sites in there areas to improve biodiversity. Seed bombs consist of compost, clay and seeds made into a round shape.see here for demonstration: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/video/2008/apr/25/seedbombing
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.
