CDC – Charlemont Street Communal Garden (4/5 week)

category dublin | environment | news report author Monday March 26, 2012 20:52author by CDC - Dublin Citizens defence Committee Report this post to the editors

Today (25/3/12) the CDC in cooperation with residents in Charlemont Street continued to work on a communal garden for the area.

Spokesperson for the CDC and Charlemont Street resident Tony N commented:

“As we entered the 4-5 week of our gardening, the fruits of our labour have finally started to materialise.”

“Our potatoes, with the help of donated horse manure, are starting to sprout from the soil and it shouldn’t be long now till we’re able to harvest them. So far we have different varieties of seeds planted, tomatoes, peas, garlic and beans just to name a few, that have also sprung forth from the soil and begun to grow.”

“We were also kindly donated a 1000 litre container, by our comrade within the CDC. This is an invaluable tool and one that will greatly enhance our gardening productivity, especially in the hot summer day’s ahead.”

“Week by week, the garden is slowly but surely taking shape. We have paint at the ready for the surrounding walls and a group of activists eager to get stuck in. It won’t be long now until the garden will be in full production mode and we are turning out some nice organic fruits and vegetables.”

ENDS.

And provides organic compost for the next years crop. Mulch gives back its strength to the land and provides tilth that impoves the plantability for next year. Barn straw with manure mixed in it is best, and won't blow away in the wind. Loose hay sometimes does.

You see in agri-buiz the factory farms don't put back the amount of organic matter that they take out in a crop each year. Just adding chemicals and poisons (against weeds) means your soils will, in time, become less and less fertile and the chemicals take over the taste. Your food then tends to look good but becomes tasteless and without nutrients from compostables returning to the land, it becomes less good for you.

Build the organic gardens everywhere and in each village, town, and city there ought to be a plan for communal gardens with a spare board and a regular board. Unity is strength. Workers of the world, unite!! You yet have a world to win!!

It's good to come across a pleasant community-based piece of news. Post more info, progress reports and photos as we meander through late spring into summer and onwards to the autumn. Good luck everybody involved.
