Hi There. I am retiring, I am a keen home gardener but with a very small garden. I am hoping to get a spot to rent where I could put up a polytunnel. I am not interested in a communal allotment- have looked at all of them that have possible space in my area, I am looking for something more private and as near to where I could be as organic as possible. I live in South Dublin- and anywhere in around Lucan, Palmerstown would be ideal. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would be greatful. Cheers and Thanks - Bobby.

How about using someone else's garden, people who for whatever reason cannot maintain their own. Might be a bit of tidying up to do but the rewards will be worth it.

Hi,thanks for replies.Had thought about the garden idea and would definite use it if one was available,but no idea how would go about this. Not sure about time security either,would hate to get it all set up and a change of mind set in! Maybe try an notice in the shops,in meantime if someone sees this who has a spot, maybe they give a shout. Cheers.

Local newspaper advert. Ask the committee at some local allotment society. Meals on wheels organisers might know of someone. A local school may be glad of the input and pass on the knowledge to the kids. A nursing home. Etc etc.

Is it far from you? I would have thought a local school might have been your best bet.

Hi, yeh, a little further than I would like but Dublin probably not ideal for this anyway. I wrote to the local school - told them the plan and who I was- no reply!
No worries- I know I will get something-Cheers

Back to the schools, nursing homes, special needs organisations, hospitals or large private gardens in the neighbourhood with you, QUICK. Time is running out, need to get that thing built and stocked in the next few weeks.
