Green Communities participated in the Dublin Made me Market on Sunday the 1st of November 2015.
The Dublin Made Me Market is a free one-day market and talks event in Smock Alley brought to you by journalist Catherine Cleary and Dublin 2020. At the talks we heard from Tony Lowth (NCAD Garden), Kaethe Burt-O’Dea (Spuds and Lifeline project), Iseult Ward (Food Cloud), Elaine Doyle (seed bombs), historian Juliana Adelman (a short history of farm animals in Dublin), Robert Moss (The Garden City) and Duncan Walker (from the Walkinstown Green Kitchen). Green Communities and DCG volunteers manned an information desk promoting the various community gardens around the city, and registered plenty of garden volunteers. Thanks to Robert Moss, Sonya Agnew, and Will Brennan for volunteering to help on the day. Also present was the new Fallen Fruit project coordinated by Bernie Brannick. Andrew Jordan from the DCU Community garden ensured that a free flow of freshly pressed apple juice was available to all. The Bridgefoot Street Community Garden also supplied the potatoes that were cooked by Graham Neville into a delicious Champ. A superb way to end the first gardening season at Bridgefoot Street, and to begin the month of November with.
