new community garden up and running in Phibsboro

first of many tree planting weekends

As part of the greening the city eco initiave to set up more community gardens along a possible greenway (the botanic spine) and CPUL (continuous productive urban landscape) for Dublin city a community garden was set up some months back on unused land in Phibsborogh between the Royal Canal and the Arrow train line. On Saturday an open public gardening day happened during which many baby Larch and Beech trees were planted.

The garden was started on Sunday the 25th of September as part of a 4 day long series of events that were put on by Irish eco activists as examples of healthy free sustainable alternatives to current car culture which relies on unjust oil wars to keep things going. The previous Thursday was car free day, not that you would have known given how little the government did for the day. Work on the garden has been happening since then; clearing the weeds, opening the soil and clearing an old fence, making a herb garden, compost heap, planting flowers, starting a willow den, and dreaming of a future with play areas, fireplaces, lots of food, a super community enjoying each others meals and much much more.

A similar garden happened on the South side of the city in Dolphins Barn and it has become a hugely successful project with many people from the area participating in growing their own food, re-establishing community, enjoying the fruits of their labour. That garden will be a year old in April.

Things are in their early stages and having done the initial ground work the team are now engaging with the wider community of Phibsborogh, Glasnevin, Cabra and beyond. so if you are interested email us or pop down on the weekend.

6- more info

intro; greening the city, connecting communities
since last year in dublin we have set up 2 new community gardens and made attempts to create a greenway for the city. we hope to do more and more, a lot of people from all walks of life and backrounds are involved; its a really great project to be invovled in- we hope to push it more this year

mosaic art bench/ ground art
ruths proposal for a mosaic piece in dolphins barn garden is great
maybe a little, or not so little, mosaic bench could be made like gaudi's lovely bench in parc guel in barcelona, see link for more images
maybe this could be a really nice event to happen during the paddys weekend
architect herman hertzberger did a community garden in a housing block exactly like this; invited the whole community for a big day or weekend of smashing plates and setting bits in benches, really lovely stuff

communication- article
we are trying to take things up a step with communication about the project and to whom- we are currently putting an article together about the project ; greening the city, sustainable cities, community invovlement, dolphins barn garden, phibsboro garden and a lot more....... we hope to circulate this around so the article is a joint effort

communication- website
we said in the garden last sunday that we could do a worksop to update the website, include links to a lot of the stuff which is all over the place at the moment ; audio, posters, text, links to other gardens etc.... we can pick a date for this later

communication- exhibition
the exhibition we had in dolphins barn public library might make its way to phibs library soon
we had a greening the city stall at the anarchist bookfair which went down pretty well, audio and film interviews were done, more on that later

greening the city ; because we have only 1 home

communication- film
we are trying to get vid cameras down to get stuff to make a short film with revolt

communication- website
perhaps we could contact duncan stewarts eco eye show and see if he would highlight the project

communication- outreach
further outreach is needed, maybe we can make up a groovy poster to put up around the dolphins barn, teresas gardens, rialto, fatima mansions area, shop windows, community centres etc- also submit it and article to all local newsletters, websites etc

communication- network
improved system to network with other irish groups etc, should come into website, but maybe a few visits later in the year, and also with seed savers and celt in clare
the phibs crew are getting a riseup list similar to dolphins barn list

paddys weekend
really make a lovely event for paddys weekend
that weekend will be followed by a weekend in phibs garden.
coincidently enough, it is great that the 19 bus connects the 2 gardens
belfast garden are having a garden birthday party on paddys day, picnic and all the rest
not sure what cork crew are up to

trees:
theres a load of fruit trees in, so maybe in a few short years we can be enjoying a meal with our own home brew wine and beer
kevin has talked about another tree walk, hopefully we can visit the old trees in sheriff st and see how they are doing, maybe get another garden going
theres been tree walks in cork

Community Gardens are nice in many ways. It's also helpful to add information regarding organic gardening.
