Community Garden

We had hoped to set up a community garden in the local area but due to COVID-19, it was not possible to do it on the local green spaces.
A front garden was volunteered by Michelle and a micro community garden project was formulated. The aim and plan for the project was:

  • To connect those in our neighbourhood who enjoy growing to get together and share knowledge
  • To be a space in our community where people with no prior knowledge of growing can learn and practice as complete beginners
  • To inspire more people (especially children) to grow food and plants in their own gardens in Crumlin
  • To act as a first step/pilot toward establishing a Crumlin Community Garden
  • To promote zero waste/upcycling
  • To practice seed saving and encourage seed exchange, perhaps a bulk buying group might form

Volunteers have been working since March 2021, growing vegetables and plants in beds. Local residents, kids and volunteers come and join in the fun.

Date: October 2020 – Present
Thanks: Michelle, Laura, Sean, Gubnait, Tina, Tina Sandrine, Katrin, Tamsyn and all the wonderful local kids.
Status: Ongoing
