|About||We want to establish a ´Communal Style´community garden in Charlestown, Co Mayo to promote local food, nutrition, mental health, social integration and in so doing, strengthen community spirit and develop the local economy. Like & Share, spread the love|
We are a not for profit small group of like-minded people who think that our town would benefit greatly from a Community Garden. We're not expert gardeners... FAR from it!, but we do have an interest in learning how to grow our own food... no exotic stuff mind you, just the greens that we Irish love... spuds, onions, cabbage carrots etc. We're interested in self-sufficiency.
The community garden is located on the backway, near the steps to the rear of Saint James´Church.
Community gardens provide the ideal opportunity for people to integrate, interact, learn, work alongside one another and share skills that are sometimes overlooked but are so necessary in functioning communities, workplaces, homes and society in general.
This will be a garden for ALL members of the community, irrespective of age, race, colour or creed. All are welcome :)
