A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

The Organic Gardening Society was established in 2010 with the aim of developing an organic garden on campus. A space was allocated at the rear of No.12 Distillery Road (on campus). After much clearing and preparation four raised beds were installed as well as a fruit border, composting area and small greenhouse.

Members of the society will learn to grow their own vegetables in a sustainable and organic manner. We also welcome members of the wider public to participate in the garden as well.

This is the first Organic Garden to be set up in an Irish University Campus and we hope that everyone who is interested in the environment, sustainability, good food or just curious about how to grow vegetables will get involved!
