The 2012 Dublin Harvest Festival

The vegetables, herbs, and fruit grown in Dublin’s thirty Community Gardens will be given away at this festival to city residents in exchange for pledges to help out with their local community garden.

Dublin City’s first free public Harvest Festival will also feature workshops on beekeeping, composting, foraging and water conservation. Children and adults can make their own apple juice from apples that have been collected from trees all over the city.

There will be talks on how to set up a community garden, horticulture, and the notion of food sovereignty whereby people are put in touch with local food producers in an attempt to support locally grown food.

Fun events will include live music, film clips and a seed swap whereby visitors to the festival can exchange surplus garden seeds for new varieties. Arts and crafts stalls will showcase Dublin’s artisan skills.

Seed Bomb workshops will allow children and adults to get their hands dirty mixing clay and peat with seeds and making bombs to take away to ‘green’ waste grounds in their area.
