East Clare Co-op Community Garden
Myself and my hoe are on the move… I have just accepted a part time post in the Community Garden in Scarriff. The East Clare Co-op has a multi-level productive market garden, with two polytunnels, raised beds, fruit trees, currant bushes, medicinal and culinary herbs and permaculture garden. Not to mention the gorgeous mosaics throughout the garden and the outdoor pizza oven under construction at the moment.
I will be working with the co-op team to develop the crops produced over the coming months. This will supply their vegetarian café which fronts the garden and makes delicious soups, salads and tasty treats. The garden is a valuable resource in the middle of the town, just off mainstreet which offers a restful and beautiful space for rest, relaxation or to learn a little of home food production. That’s where I’ll be this growing season and I am looking forward to supporting their work.
However, it does mean that I won’t be in the garden at Good & Green as much, although we will still grow a smaller volume of our full range of crops. We will open for drop-in on Wednesday afternoons, 1pm – 5pm, from Wednesday March 25th.
