New Design's for the garden

Two DIT Design Students were in the garden today, they are participating in a eco-design elective.
Michael built a mobile incubator for crops and Siobhan built a sculpture that can be used to support sweet peas, beans or sunflowers. Together they also built a bench. All creations were made from salvaged materials in the garden and some wood was collected from the salvage yard next door.

Second shed

We were kindly given a donation of a used wooden shed to the community garden,as we are never shy to take and use an opportunity to further the benefit of the garden.The volunteers set about getting the shed assembled.First we had to move the smaller shed as we need more room to located the new shed and also no to block the light for the greenhouse which is still been put together.A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED ON THE DAY .So lets have a meeting in our bigger shed.

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.
