CDC – Charlemont Street Communal Garden (second week)

category dublin | environment | news report author Monday February 20, 2012 18:14author by Nicoauthor email citizensdefence at hotmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Today (19-2-12) the Dublin Citizens Defence Committee carried out a second weeks work on a communal garden in Charlemont Street, Tom Kelly Flats.

Spokesperson for the CDC and Charlemont Street Resident, Tony Nicoletti commented:

“We started off today by clearing out some more weeds and rubbish from the gardens and started planting potatoes. Two ridges/mounds, both 20ft in length, were dug for the potatoes to be planted in and with a bit of luck, will grow into many. The labour intensive process of turning the soil and uprooting the weeds is almost completed and should be ready soon to plant more seeds and potatoes.”

“Among other items we have organised for the garden is a brick-BBQ, which we hope to start work on shortly. We are also planning on painting the walls in the garden and hope to incorporate some murals onto it, painted by the kids from the area.”

“Things are looking up and the garden is starting to take shape, lets hope the weather continues to be kind to us when we meet again in a couple of weeks time”

ENDS.

Truly a way forward, and if the organic methods of agriculture are practiced, then your food will be minus the chemicals that make for tastlessness, and the poisons that agri-buiz uses to stop weeds, instead of hiring workers to do hand weeding which leads to organic food. This leads to living a life with just cause every season of the year. A life worth living. Workers of the world, unite!!
