One of our members has kindly requested we send out the news that she has runner bean seeds to give away to any members and neighbours who want to grow them in their own garden- Thanks Pauline!
Two varieties available: Wesley Magic, Wisely White - "...both delicious beans and heavy croppers". And she'll write out instructions for anyone who wants to give them a try! Interested? Send us an email and we'll put in you in touch!

Please feel free to join us on a Saturday at noon (weather permitting)- stop for a chat or help with some weeding or cleanup. If you miss us, you are more than welcome to contribute a bit of labour whenever it suits. It's a great stress reliever!
We have been shortlisted for the final round of the Better Together video competition. You can keep voting until Nov 21 on http://www.bettertogether.ie/video/broadstone-community-garden

We are also delighted to announce that the Parks Dept have given us a new bed to create a wild flower and bee garden. Watch this space!
