Creating the Community Garden

Posted by Daithí de Paor.

Gaelscoil Philib Barun has donated a piece of land to the Transition Town Tramore group for a community garden space. Passers-by may have already noticed the polytunnel that was erected on the site recently by a group of eager volunteers. There will be a public meeting in the school on Wednesday 21st April at 8pm to discuss plans for the development of this community space. Whether you are a keen gardener or a complete novice in all things green you are encouraged to attend. T3 and all volunteers will be turning the first sod on Friday 23rd April at 7pm so if you can’t make the Wednesday meeting join us on Friday instead with your wellies and spades.

Finally, as part of the educational theme behind the garden we will be holding a short willow workshop on Saturday 1st May from 10am to 1pm. Learn how to construct a willow archway and compost area for your garden. A small donation of €7 is requested from participants. Please e-mail your details to Fiona at tramore20@eircom.net to book your place. Donations of materials, top soil, seedlings etc for the garden are most welcome. Please contact Fiona if you would like to make any donations to this worthwhile project. You can find T3 on Facebook at “Transition Town Tramore T3
