Blarney Park Community Garden is a group of residents and locals who have come together with the common purpose of collectively gardening a piece of disused urban wasteland owned by Dublin City Council. The garden will be managed and maintained with the active participation of the gardeners themselves. The purpose is to provide fresh produce and plants as well as satisfying labour, neighbourhood improvement, sense of community and connection to the environment.
The land for the project is owned by Dublin City Council and is located between Superquinn on the Sundrive Road and Poddle Park in Kimmage. Our group is still negotiating with Dublin City Council regarding final details that we hope will satisfy issues raised by members of the local community. However, we are confident that we be allowed to use the site and that the site will be ready for the 2011 growing season.
