Awards Season!

Finglas Community Garden have been encouraged with two awards this September. We first attended the Community Awards at the Finglas Civic Centre at Seámus Mellowes Road. There we got to see examples of the great efforts being made in the North West Area of Dublin City Council. We saw photographs from different garden initiatives in the locality and received an Endeavour Award for our own project.

On 25 September 2014, we attended the Dublin Bus Community Spirit Award in the Mansion House. Niall Quinn was M.C. for the night. It was an uplifting event and we learnt of many voluntary projects throughout the city of Dublin. Finglas Community Garden were honoured with a certificate and a grant to continue with our plans to make the garden more accessible to people of all ages and abilities.

Plant to pan

So eight years on we're still planting seeds, putting the plants onto a pan and onto a plate!  At the moment it's purple sprouting brocolli and leeks going in the pan. There's also a selection of herbs available. Sage and butter with pasta is my current best way to incorporate herbs into the dinner. The purple head of the brocolli is pretty as a picture and it's worth capturing before they turn to yellow flower which are pretty and delicate in their way too.
