DCG has written a water access survey to help gather information on what options exist for urban growing projects in Dublin and elsewhere, with the advent of charges for the usage of the treated mains water supply. Please take the time to complete this questionnaire and return it by email so that we can start to build a picture of how big a challenge this is likely to be, and what options exist to tackle it.

Robert Moss, Green Communities Adviser with An Taisce, talks to Noel McGuinness on Northside Today about the effect of water charges on growing your own vegetables and fruit and Dublin Community Gardens. They discuss alternative methods of providing water for gardening purposes including rainwater harvesting, the use of “grey” water and how you can protect your soil from drying out.
