Perhaps next time you could combine a bicycle trip around the gardens with a session at the end of fixing up any of the bikes which have problems?

Those interested could learn for themselves more about how bikes work, and be riding more efficiently, safely and comfortably. I would be happy to help, if you would be into that.

Hey this looks cool. Would you consider including Finglas Garden in your next cycle... I know it's a long slog uphill to West Finglas!

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.
