Bridgefoot Street Community Garden Open Day

Posted By The Liberties / 10th August / Liberties Life, Mingle in the Liberties / 0 Comments

Bridgefoot Street Community Garden held an open day on Saturday the 1st of August. About 20 people came to help dig the potato crop and share in a meal grown, dug, and cooked on Bridgefoot Street! Participants included local residents and also gardeners from other community gardens including; Brookfield Community Garden, Cherryorchard Garden, DCU Garden, NCAD Garden, Braithwaite Street Allotments.

Many thanks are due to the Mendicity Centre for allowing the use of their kitchen in preparing a meal for all those who attended.

By all accounts this was a most enjoyable day as the weather was a rare day of warm sunshine after an unsettled and cold July. In all about 5 sacks of potatoes were harvested. Many people took a bag home with them and a sack each was delivered to the Mendicity Centre and Tony O’Rourke’s Cafe.
