Hi all,

I hope I'm not out of place posting here. I just thought that any of you in the Wexford Area would be interested in a new community garden that's just getting going a few miles from Wexford town in the village of Castlebridge. It's in the walled garden of Castlebridge House. I don't know the exact size but it's a pretty big plot of land. It's currently being cleared of willow and brambles and the polytunnel should arrive in the next week or so. Have a look at some photos here http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=118812872929 There should be a website/blog up and running soon as well as an updated Facebook page.

We're looking for volunteers to help out clearing and planting. There's a lot of work to do but it's going to be amazing! We plan on getting the veg garden started this year as well as putting the hard landscaping in and getting a sensory garden built and planted. If you or anyone you know would be interested in helping out please get in touch through me or the Facebook page. We also need all kinds of plastic (or other) pots so if anyone needs to clear out their garden shed please think of us Smile

That's a really interesting project and I wish you all the best with it. I'm afraid I'm way up in the north of the county, but I'd love to follow your progress, so do please tell us about your website when it's up and running.

Work is progressing very well in the community garden. The polytunnel is up and the first few plants were put in yesterday. We've started work on the raised beds outside - there will be 6 BIG beds! First one was completed and planted with an assortment of cabbages, sweetcorn, broccoli and celery. Click on this link to see a photographic record of progress. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Castlebridge-Community-Garden/145914345478411?sk=photos

If anyone is in the area there will be a fundraising concert by the Castlebridge Gospel Choir and Friends in the church next Sunday, 17 July at 5.30, followed by a blessing of the garden. All welcome.
