Gairdin Phobal – Garradh Cholmcille Community Garden Project

Gairdin Phobal – Garradh Cholmcille Community Garden Project

The community garden – now at Garradh Cholmcille (next to the Fire station in Falcarragh) has along history dating back to 2009 when Pobail le Chéile decided to try and develop people’s interest in the health and wellbeing benefits of gardening. 

This garden peoject was the first community garden supported by the HSE in the county, and we have been providing classes and skills workshops on growing your own food for the past 10 years.

The site at Garradh Cholmcille operates as both a shared allotment space and a community garden. the gate and polytunnel doors are always open and people are encouraged to come in, have a look and even sit a while and enjoy the peace and quiet.

We have just completed a series of Gardening Month classes and we will be planning some spring workshops for 2020. The group of local people who grow produce there will continue to plant and tend the garden throughout the autumn and winter. If you would like to learn more about the garden or give a hand ring Paul or Rosemary on 07491 80111 or text 0860841433
