The bark for the paths will hopefully be arriving on Wednesday afternoon. The 'Barkman' is working in the area at the moment and should have a half load for us on Wednesday. His truck won't be able to drive as far as the Garden so he''ll deliver it at the Boxing Club and we'll have to ferry it over.We can borrow a wheelborrow from the Basin ...if anyone can 'borrow' another that would be great.
It should be there around 4pm.We will be planting some more vegetables at 5 that evening anyway so it can be done then.
A group of us will be working in the garden this Wednesday at around 5pm, if you would like to join us.
The raised beds are now filled with both soil and plants- a great day’s work yesterday at BCG.

Marion Kelly is organising a trip to an organic nursery in Kildare, for Saturday 21st April. She has some places left for the trip if any of you are interested. It will also be a nice event for you to meet gardeners from other community garden projects across the city. The field trip to Jessica Farrell’s organic nursery in Kildare, is on Saturday 21st April, and costs €10 per person. This fee is used to pay for the training on the day. The training is geared towards community, and small independent gardeners, and will focus on herbs and their uses. People will need to arrive at the Carmelite Community Centre Carpark (round the back), 56 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, at 9:30am. The journey there will be by mini bus, and shared cars.
All participants should bring 2 sterilised (use boiling water) and sealed (use the lid…likewise sterilised) jam jars. Sensible shoes as well might come in handy. Contact Marion Kelly on 086 8649678.
Thanks to Robert Moss from Dublin Community Growers for letting us know about this trip.
