The Community Garden and Farm Zone

Learning about sustainability must lead to practicing it! What better way to taste the fruits of the wonderful knowledge on site than to take a walk down to the community garden and the community farm? With scarecrows, bug hotels and beekeepers, the tranquility of the water feature and the Nemeton reflective sanctuary this is an opportunity to relax and learn in this pop up green space. There will be vertical garden, seed bomb, microgreen and mushroom workshops as well as opportunities throughout the weekend to talk to gardeners and growers in Ireland, view sustainable agriculture projects from Africa or get involved in co-creating garden art mosaic.
