John’s Garden Community Project Official Opening

June 2, 2013 0

Fingal Adult Education Service carried out a Community Garden Project last year with a local group “Reach” who are under the umbrella of the National Learning Network. Supported by Balbriggan Town Council the project renovated a piece of waste ground on the corner of Drogheda St. and Brecan Close into a fantastic garden plot.

The official opening of the garden took place on Friday 31st May and a plaque was unveiled dedicating the garden to one of the group members John Dempsey who sadly passed away. This event was part of the Balbriggan Summerfest celebrations and shows how together we can highlight the importance of community spirit and working together in Balbriggan and Fingal.
