Finglas Community garden has been open since 2006: the site is about 100m by 5m in extent. We have nine annual beds where we grow potatoes, onions, garlic, cabbage and beetroot. As our site is on the grounds of a National School, it is secure and we have access to water and a shed – we’re developing our relations with the school staff and students.
We’ve extended the garden recently by developing one of Dublin’s first forest gardens, with apple, plum, cherry and pear trees, soft-fruit in between, and a plan to place perennials around these in the next growing season. We’re looking for volunteers at all times to help out and learn about gardening.
Where: St. Joseph’s National School, Barry Avenue, Finglas, Dublin 11.
When: Saturdays, 11am. (subject to change: contact details below)
